Nové Město na Moravě - Milovy
||We are pleased to invite you to another significant event taking place
in the Czech Republic - the JWOC in the magic year of 2000. This time, we
want to invite you to the beautiful region of the Českomoravská highlands
(highlands situated on the Bohemian-Moravian border). The terrain that we
are intending to use for the JWOC have never been used for international
orienteering events (with the exception of ski-orienteering).
The JWOC 2000 will take place in the surroundings of Nové Město na Moravě, which - although being a small town (cca 10,000 inhabitants) - is the centre of Žďár highlands recreation area - an ideal place for spending both summer and winter holidays.
Nové Město na Moravě is well-known to all sportsmen as a place where the cross-country skiing World Cup regularly takes place. (The next event will be held in January 1999.) In 1997 two Ski-orienteering World Cup events were also organised here.
Another reason why the town of Nové Město na Moravě is a place worth visiting are its historical and cultural monuments such as the gallery of local importance situated in the chateaux, the Horácké museum with its permanent exposition of ski manufacturing and skiing in the area.
The Nové Město na Moravě vicinity is also a place of birth and activity of various Czech painters and sculptors.
Nové Město na Moravě is situated nearly in the geometrical centre of the Czech Republic. Its position is 150 km SE from Prague, 60 km NW from Brno and 11 km E from Žďár nad Sázavou.
Going by car, the easiest access is via the motorway D1 (connecting Brno with Prague), taking the exit 119 (from Prague) or 162 (from Brno) to Žďár n.S. The distance from the motorway is 40km (see map in appendix).
There is also a railroad of local importance going through the town.
As for travelling by air, the airports in Prague, Wien or Brno can be used.
