Where the Czech...? #51

Does anybody know from where in the Czech Republic this photo was taken?

That's an impressive looking photo Captain. By the landscape, I'm going to say it's either in close to either the north or the south border.

You're right Icarus. One third or less of that picture is of the Czech Republic. The rest is one of the neighbouring countries. But not Slovakia.

Cesky Tesin? (Forgive the lack of hooks and accents). I'm not 100% sure, but it looks familiar. And the Poles definitely got the better half of that deal.

Captain Oddsocks said...

Sorry Michael, it's nowhere near Cesky Tesin.

Actually, I was thinking more of either the Northern German border.

Captain Oddsocks said...

Time for another little hint?

It's nowhere near the Polish border, either.

OK, if this is correct, then Google is my new god. Is it Hardegg which is in Austria but connected to Czech by a bridge?

Well done yet again Michael, that's it exactly.
The place I took the photo from is a lookout on the Czech side of the border, between Znojmo and Vranov nad Dyji.
Nice countryside down there.
