Nové Město na Moravě lies in the heart of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands and is a prominent sports resort. In winter, it is a mecca of Czech biathlon and cross-country skiing; in summer it hosts mountain bike riding events. Next week the town will host the 2024 IBU World Championships.

With just days to go to the World Biathlon Championships in Nové Město na Moravě, the anticipation in the mountain town of around 10,000 inhabitants is palpable. Winter and summer sports have been a big part of life in the town ever since the first ski race was organized there in 1910.
