Photo points at national park to be scrapped

The administration of Šumava National Park has said that existing “photo points” in the vicinity of the park will be dismantled by May 25.

The designated areas had featured tableaus and equipment allowing visitors to take pictures at special lookout points, which they could download later from the web.

The spokesman for Šumava National Park Jan Dvořák said the main reason for the decision was new directives on the protection of personal data.
