Czechs have a passion for mushroom-picking and due to favourable weather conditions the country’s coniferous forests are now teeming with mushrooms. Šumava and Vysočina are popular destinations for mushroom pickers and there are no restrictions on picking mushrooms for one’s own use, to be consumed or dried for the winter months.
