Obora trail: yellow trail. Length: 3,6 km.
The length of the trail is 3.6 km. It is a less demanding hiking trail with views and a small super elevation. The trail starts at the Masaryk’s square and follows Hradní Street where it turns right through a simple gate to Plačkova Street. The gate used to close the former Jewish ghetto from its eastern side nearby the estate. It is the only gate out of the original three that has been preserved. In the past it was equipped with doors that were closed for the night. Today, there is an educational trail through the Jewish quarter (26 marked stops) that starts at the gate and there is an information board. At Plačkova Street, there are small houses with elements of Empire style decorations. At the end of the street and before the square, the trail turns left up Pod Klášterem Street that goes along the wall of the chateau garden. At the end of the street, there is a building of the former Moritz Saxl factory (today a branch of the Regional Archive). Turn left and walk up Velenova Street. At the end, turn right into Žerotínova Street that appears to be drowned below the monumental mantlet of the chateau game park. Žerotínova Street changes into a comfortable path below the game park with benches for resting. On the left, you can see the massif of Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. In the middle, there is the Boskovice Gully called Malá Haná. On the right, you can see the ridges of Drahany Highlands. There are beautiful views of the western side as well as the northern side of the town. In the west, you see two Permian buttes - Rovná on the left(504 m), Habří on the right (Vinohrádky 441 m) with a transmitter. Continue along this path and you will pass a Jewish cemetery on the right, which is the third largest in the Czech Republic and has an area of 14,528 m2. Most tombstones come from the 18th century. The path goes along a gardening community and then turns right to a steep grassy trail down to the Boskovice creek (the trail may be slippery in rainy weather). Walk against its flow and you will get to the gate of the Jewish cemetery around the parish meadow. Go along Potoční Street, turn right up Bílkova Street and just before the U vážné studny square take the steps on the left through U Templu Street that will lead you to the old Synagogue Maior. The synagogue was built in 1639, it is under reconstruction at present and it is a valuable cultural monument. Continue to the left into the area below St. Jacob’s Church, climb up the stairs in the retaining wall below St. Jacob’s Church back to the Masaryk square.
Walking along the trail is at your own risk!
