Majestic National Park Bohemian Switzerland
Head for the countryside of Bohemian Switzerland, one of the most beautiful national parks in the Czech Republic. The area suffered from a devastating fire in August this year but most of the park remained unaffected. We will take you to places that are not as famous as the spectacular Pravčická Archway, which reopened made to tourists on 1 October, and yet they can thrill you and offer a unique experience.

Děčín: The Gate to Bohemia Offers the Long Avenue, a Unique Ferrata and a Rock Organ 

Děčín, a town on the banks of River Elbe, at the lowest sea level in Czechia, is rightly called the Gate to Bohemia↗. It is worth visiting the charming chateau with a beautiful rose garden, to which you can take the unique long avenue with Baroque arcades. Adrenaline lovers will definitely like the Pastýřská stěna – the only via ferrata in Czechia located in a town centre. Cyclists should check out the Elbe Trail, leading to other undiscovered places in the country. You can also take a trip to the nearby destinations, such as Benešov nad Ploučnicí, the pearl of Saxon Renaissance or Česká Kamenice with extraordinary basalt organ.


East of Elbe: Will You Find the Cinderella, Seven Dwarves and the Lookout Towers of the Austrian Ambassador to Turin?   

The most beautiful views of the Bohemian Switzerland can be experienced around Jetřichovice, for example, from Mary’s Rock or the lookout tower at Rudolfův kámen, built by Count Kinsky, the secret imperial counsellor and Austrian ambassador in Turin. If you are planning to visit with children, we recommend the Dwarf Rock where you can have some fun looking for the Cinderella and seven dwarves, carved into the surrounding rocks.

West of Elbe: Napoleon’s Boot Lost in a Labyrinth of Gorges

The densely wooded area, hiding one of the most beautiful rock formations in the country, is a paradise for rock climbers as well as fans of easy hikes. There are the Tisá Walls with labyrinths of narrow gorges amidst spectacular rock formations with characteristic names, such as Hercules, Elephant Foot or Napoleon’s Boot.   
Also, there are the deserted Ostrovské Rocks on the very border with Germany, offering a peace and quiet for relaxation. Complete your day with a hike to Děčínský Sněžník, the highest table mountain in Czechia, with amazing views of the surroundings. Ideal starting points for this area includeÚstí nad Labem or Děčín, from where you can follow well-marked hiking trails.

Tips for Rock Climbers

Massive sandstone towers, walls and rocky boulders, standing alone and forming groups with narrow walkways, ravines and trails – these are rock towns.
