The extensive peat-bog Pohořské Slatě (Pohoří Fens) lies in the southern part of the Novohradské Hory (Nové Hrady Mountains) at the foot of Myslivna mountain. It is near the Czech-Austrian border around the small village Pohoří.

This border area was forbidden for tourists during the communist era in the second half of the 20th century. Due to this reason the untouched nature has been very well preserved.
The peat-bog and the large water meadows around it lie in the spring area of the Pohořský Potok (Pohoří Stream), which is a tributary of the small river called Černá (Black). The nature reserve was established here for the protection of rare vegetation of peat-bogs and some species of animals.

A small road leads from the town Kaplice through the villages Malonty and Pohorská Ves to Pohoří.
