Sedlec-Prčice (Příbramsko) – Today, fans of tourism will set out on the route of the 55th year of the Prague-Prčice long-distance march. While in the previous two the event could not take place due to a pandemic, this year it was marked by the exclusion of railway traffic between Olbramovice and Chotoviny. Because of this, the organizers were forced to limit the number of participants. Only those who have registered electronically in advance can go on the march. The organizers estimated the participation of 20,000 people on Friday. They did not know the exact number yet, as registration payments were still running out.
Pedestrian routes measure from 23 to 70 kilometers, with the longest starting in Prague. Part of the route is reserved for cyclists. The walking route for children starts in Votice, the wheelchair in Miličín. Details can be found on the website www.praha-prcice.cz.
The Prague-Prčice march has been taking place since 1966, when five hundred tourists managed to cover a distance of 100,000 Czech elbows, which corresponds to about 60 kilometers. Tourists last marched in 2019. A year later, the event was postponed due to a pandemic, but in the end it did not take place last year either. It was not possible to meet the conditions regarding the number of participants to obtain a positive opinion of the Chief Hygienist for the town of Sedlec-Prčice.
