ABSTRACT
We have worked on the development of cultural landscapes in the Vráž u Písku cadastre which is situated in the South Bohemia. Cadastre is interesting because there is a castle area with a park landscape, on which we placed the main emphasis. The park and castle are currently used as a spa area for guests with mobility disabilities. We concentrated on archival collection of written and visual data, which were then put into the context of land use. Data that we have collected went through the digitization in three time series (Stable Cadastre - 1942, 50 years of the 20th century and the present day). Thus we found out where there were landscape changes and where the landscape is stable. Based on these results, we evaluate existing hiking trails and proposed new walking trail in the park.
