About Us

The Voluntary Association of Rural Municipalities of the Micro Region Mariánskolázeňsko (hereinafter referred to as the "Association ") involves rural villages near Mariánské Lázně: Dolní Žandov, Drmoul, Lázně Kynžvart, Mariánské Lázně, Stará Voda, Trstěnice, Tři Sekery, Valy, Velká Hleďsebe, Vlkovice and Zádub-Závišín.

The Association is organized under § 46 et seq. Act No. 128/2000 Coll., on Municipalities (Municipal Establishment), as amended, and is therefore treated as a public entity.


The activities and cooperation with the Association of the communities involves protecting and promoting the common interests of communities for the comprehensive development of the Mariánské Lázně region (environment, urban planning, promotion of small and medium enterprises, housing, education, leisure, transport, tourism, care of monuments, science, etc.), ensuring a coordinated approach to community development of various areas (particularly rural development to achieve optimal compliance with the principles of sustainable development), and concentration of ways and means to promote goals beyond the possible scope and significance of individual members, including providing appropriate financial resources.


The Association was registered at the Regional Office of the Karlovy Vary Region on November 27th, 2003.


Working with Members in the Association and Implementation of Joint Projects


The prevailing activity of the Association is currently fundraising for the development of the Mariánskolázeňskaa region (grant management). The majority of Association projects are by individual municipalities (about 75%), while a smaller proportion (25%) are joint projects. A smaller part is work organized and run by member municipalities and NGOs active in the Association.

Cooperation within the Association can reduce the disadvantage of small towns, which do not have human and financial resources to implement separate projects.

A portion are suburban communities, others are typical rural villages, structurally affected by a large population exchange after the Second World War.

Partnership / Partnership Search

Thus far, Mariánskolázeňská has not realized any large, cross-border cooperation projects, only smaller projects with nearby Bavaria (Germany). Despite this, interest continues in a partnership, ideally with a similarly placed region.

Currently, we are interested in developing cooperation in the following areas:

- Destination management

- Individual travel and tourism

- Access to and protection of resources

- Cycling

- The general models of cooperation of small municipalities (regional management)

- Conservation
