Rich history and natural beauty
The East Bohemian town of Lanškroun lies on the borders of the Bohemia and Moravia regions, below the foothills of the Eagle Mountains and on the upper stream of the Moravian Sazava river. With a population of just over 10,000, it is the administrative and economic center of the Lanškroun region. The town also boasts a rich history, having been founded in the second half of the 13th century. The nearby Lanškroun pond nature reserve was established in 1990 – shortly before the SCHOTT site was founded – and is an important nesting place for migratory birds, as well as being a popular beauty spot.
