Bohemian Switzerland is a fairy tale come correct. The one of a kind forest and rock landscape, the gorges of the Kamenice (Kamnitz) River, and the region about the Růžovský vrch may take you back to your childhood adventure dreams.
The most spectacular highlights of the Bohemian Switzerland National Park are Pravčická brána, the biggest sandstone arch in Europe, Edmund’s Gorge and Silent Gorge, a rock ravine close to the picturesque resort of Hřensko, the Falkenštejn Rock Castle and lots of other uncommon stone formations. Yeah, it is fairly a lot about the rocks, but I make certain you that one particular does not will need to be a geologist at heart to genuinely appreciate the location and its wild spirit.
To be sincere, I’m very confident every person will like it. If I hadn’t noticed it myself, I would have believed it was just a nicely-carried out photo editing job. I wasn’t even fortunate with the climate, but Hřensko was one particular of the pretty handful of locations on this planet exactly where it didn’t bother me as well a lot.
The gloomy aura has likely worked in our favor as we had the location fairly a lot to ourselves. Pravčická brána was a small far more crowded, but not to an extend that would make it significantly less enjoyable.
Bohemian Switzerland’s nature is beautiful, I guess it is tough to disagree with that. There is even far more to this location. Given that it has been a preferred tourist location given that the finish of 19th century (the hype has been on for a when…) Bohemian Switzerland is also residence to some good architecture, like mountain castles and classic wooden mountain hotels. The former are the major purpose why I loved Hřensko so a lot.
The town was beautiful to stroll about and discover. This location created me really feel like I was in a Thomas Mann’s novel. It was a pretty uplifting feeling. All that mentioned, I’m very satisfied we opted to keep a small outdoors of town, closer to the major tourist trails. We’ve only visited for a weekend, so we wanted to squeeze as a lot as attainable in that time. I’m satisfied to report that was a fantastic choice. And we loved our small cozy bungalow at the U Fořta Hotel Complicated. It was a amazing location to unwind soon after our hiking trip. We had been also pretty impressed with their on-website restaurant. I’m not having any perks for that mention. I just had a good weekend.
Given that we only had a weekend, we could only take two daytrips. We’ve picked the most well-known/ most clear attractions, believing that there will have to be a purpose behind all the recognition. It paid off this time. We visited Pravčická brána, like the view points and castle, and the Gorges (like the boat trip). There is entrance charge to each locations, but we discovered it affordable. It is worth it, and the cash is supposed to go to the protection fund, so I guess it is a win-win predicament. The trails are not pretty demanding. Each routes seemed to be sort-friendly, dog-friendly, and completely maintained.
Bohemian Switzerland is extremely simple to attain from Prague. We took a train to Děčín, exactly where we took a bus to Hřensko. The bus quit is ideal in front of the railway station constructing. There is also an information center at the station, exactly where you can get a map and substantial facts on the area. Even though it is simple and rather rapid to attain Bohemian Switzerland from the capital, I wouldn’t propose it as a day-trip location. It just will not give this location justice it deserves. Even soon after a weekend trip I really feel like I will will need to come back. See you subsequent year then!
