In Záběhlice above the Botič creek, uphill towards the Košík green fields, there is a romanesque abandoned old orchard, called still Visňovka on old maps. There are not only ruins of cherry trees and its appearance is wilder than you could imagine in the Boubín National Park. The ancient trees are hidden in a dense wildtree succession, occasionally one can encounter a plastic campground of urban robinsons. This bio corridor is called Trojmezí and there is going on a battle between Czech mighty developers who would like see the valley above the Botič covered with houses for milionairs, and the conservationists and lovers of old times. Hard to say who will win?
