Doubrava Haňovice

Haňovice is a small village of around 475 people located roughly 20km northeast of Olomouc and 200km from Prague.  I decided to make a rather short 'football' related trip the last week of December and thought that Haňovice was a good option.  I took a train to the village of Myslechovice, which is right beside Haňovice.  The bad thing about the trip was the it took 1 hour and 15 minutes, with a 20 minute stop in Senice.  All of this for just 30km of travel.  The train seemed to stop every 3-5 minutes.

The local football side currently plays in the 7th tier of football (Olomoucký Kraj - 1 B třída, skupina B) , but as recently as the 2009/10 season they were in the 6th tier.  The football pitch is about a 15 minute walk from the Myslechovice stop, and is located about 300m down a dirt road which leads into the woods.
