    Hi Helena & Peter!
    Warm greetings from Přerov (central Moravia, two Swedish miles from Olomouc :-). Thank you for your beautiful blog about my country (forgive my Swedish which is just my hobby).
    I may be able to help you if you need any special information about the Czech Republic from someone who has lived there for 58 years and speaks some Swedish. So let me know when you are travelling here again.
    Have fun!

    • Roger says:

      We are visiting the Czech Republic for the first time this summer.
      Our first stop will be in Loket where our grandson will compete in motocross.
      We do not want to stay at the resort as it is too much of a hassle for us, but would like tips on nearby campsites or pitches.
      No further away than you can cycle.
      Grateful for tips
