The sixth trail begins at the Bělidla suburb, originally home to a range of craftsmen's cottages situated around the perimeter of a small square, and where fabric was bleached with the help of sun and water, hence the name: bělit – to bleach. In the 1980s, the town was cut in two by the main road, and most of the suburb was converted into a bus station. Today, it has been sensitively reconstructed, and enhanced with the addition of a small recreational park and other buildings. The trail then continues into the hospital grounds, built in 1872, and its surroundings containing atypical semi-detached housing built after 1989. Finally the trail includes the housing estate Řetízek, the result of excellent urban planning.
