Local Action Group - Blanský les - Netolicko o.p.s. (Blanský Forest - Netolicko Public Service Company)

The Local Action Group (LAG) Region is situated in South Bohemia, in the picturesque landscape of the Šumava (Bohemian Forest) foothills. It partly overlaps with the Blanský Forest Protected Landscape Area, dominated by Kleť Mountain (1084 m above sea level) with a chair lift, a watch tower and an astronomical observatory. The LAG Region offers a wide variety of natural beauties and places of historical interest. Situated quite conveniently between the attractive tourist destinations of České Budějovice, Český Krumlov, and Hluboká nad Vltavou, and boasting both cultural heritage and natural resources, the region is destined to develop tourism; to enhance the quality of life in rural communities; to put emphasis on leisure-time activities; and to preserve and improve living environment. The LAG activities cover three microregions with the total area of 411 sq. m., including 33 communities with the population of over 19,700.

  • a region attractive to entrepreneurs;
  • a region attractive due to its natural beauties;
  • a region attractive due to its infrastructure & conveniences.
