Krkonoše Mountains issue ban on blueberry pickers

The administration of the Krkonoše Mountains National Park has banned access to some parts of the park in an attempt to limit damage to nature often caused by blueberry pickers who go off the marked trails in the summer months. The ban concerns about 15 percent of the park’s total area and doesn’t apply to marked trails. It will take effect as of Monday, July 20 until October 15. Those who are caught breaking the ban face a fine ranging from 1000 to 10 000 crowns.
