The Club of Czech Tourists celebrates 135 years.

In June, the Club of Czech Tourists celebrates 135 years since its founding. To mark the anniversary, the club hosted a week of celebrations in the form of marches and visits to museums and viewpoints throughout the Czech Republic. As part of the celebrations, KČT presented, among other things, projects of the club, such as The Walk for Health with KČT or The Trails of Love, which was created in cooperation with RegioJet and Kofola ČeskoSlovakia. As of January 1, 2023, a total of 44,100 km of hiking trails, 40,541 km of road bike trails, 556 km of ski trails marked by a ski sign, 2,800 km of riding trails and 149 km of wheelchair routes were marked in the Czech Republic.

Since the beginning of its operation, the club has sought to promote tourism, protect nature or build affordable accommodation for hikers by running mountain chalets. In addition, next year some tourist lodges will celebrate 100 years of their status. The signage is also becoming an inspiration for many tourist organisations or associations who take over and use the unique system of tourist signage abroad. As in, for example, banat, Croatia, Brazil or, currently, Mongolia.
As part of the Walk for Health project with KČT, the club aims to modernize walking routes. The aim is to eliminate dangerous confluences of walking routes with traveled roads and cycleways, transfer them to more suitable forest or dirt roads, and identify attractive walking routes for day or multi-day walks.
The Club of Czech Tourists is the guarantor of the unique uniform marking of tourist marked routes throughout the Czech Republic. The first marked tourist route was established in 1889. Among the first were marked roads in the surrounding span of the Danube valley and roads between Beroun and Karlštejn. Red was used for the first markings, blue was added with the development of the routes, and since 1916 green and yellow have been added. Perfect signage and map bases are enriched with data on local attractions, accommodation and dining options.
