The village of Vestec is situated on the plain and is a link between Prague and the adjacent municipalities of Jesenice, Hodkovice and Zdiměřice.

This location attracts a large number of cyclists for rides outside Prague and also to visit our village.

These are mostly recreational activities and a friendly refreshment and rest in several local pubs or at Vestecky pond is always welcome. Our village is widely used for a last refreshment before returning to the capital.

Tips for bike trips for families with children

Route 1 (total approx. 18 km) - a small circuit around the area - We will go along Vestecká towards the golf tee and the Průhonice Park, along which we will get to Kocanda. At Kocanda we will cross the road past the mill and start climbing up to Hornoirčany forest. We pass the motorway bypass and we are already in the forest. In the forest we make a small circle connected with crossing a ford (it is possible to cross the footbridge) and we are at the biggest climb to the Osnitsa cherry tree. Then we get back to Osnice and join the road around the Průhonice Park, which will lead us to the village of Rozkoš. Here you can have a snack in the restaurant at Procházků. From here we go along the cycle path to Hrnčíř and around the Hrnčíř pond we return along the dirt road to the Vestecký pond, here the trip ends.
