Thank you, partners - part 1
The city of Jičín is one of the gateways to the Bohemian Paradise, Duke Albrecht of Valdštejn wanted to build his residential city here, and generations of children (and adults) know it above all as a fairytale setting. The story of the cobbler Rumcajs takes place here, but also the story of Kuba and Stázina, for whose red skirt the cobblers waged war. Every year at the beginning of September, fans of the " Jičín, the city of fairy tales" festival descend on the city, and tens of thousands of others come for the pleasant atmosphere, to visit the nearby Prachovský skály or to discover how varied and tasty Jičín's gastronomic scene is. Last but not least, Jičín is a city of sports: champions of the Czech Republic and the world in all possible sports come from here. We are therefore grateful for the friendliness with which the City Council and the Mayor welcomed the MTBO World Championship.
The Hradec Králové Region is a region unique in its location, which stretches from the Labe lowlands to the highest peaks of the Czech Republic. It can be proud of rock formations, castles and chateaux, and other cultural and architectural attractions. Right at the beginning of 2023, this region showed that it is a fan of sports and was able to host a huge multi-sport event - the Winter Olympics for children and youth. The icing on the cake was that the promising athletes who represented this region also won the overall victory - i.e. the largest number of medals.

The Bernard family brewery successfully continued the long tradition of brewing beer in Humpolec and made its way to the hearts of not only Czech beer lovers. The brewery follows its own path, which it believes in and which is successful. Just like orienteering athletes who follow their own path in unknown terrain using a map, compass, own experience and abilities. A path that will lead them closer to victory.
