Explore with us the breathtaking Bohemian Paradise UNESCO Geopark, one of the most visited places in the Czech Republic. In just an hour‘s drive from Prague, you can revel in a true archeological, geological, and cultural gem. It’s time to discover why this fairytale Bohemian Paradise area has attracted writers, painters, artists and dreamers of all kinds. You too can enjoy strolling past romantic ponds, admiring extensive rock towns and waking in the countryside panoramic views of this region which is known in Czech as Český ráj, and was created as the first nature reserve in 1955 and later enlarged in 2002. This protected landscape area lies about 90 kilometers north-east of Prague and today has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Czechia.
Imprints of Time in the Walls of Rocks
Have you heard unusual names like Dragon’s Tooth, Lighthouse, Bandmaster, Skull or Madonna? They are inviting you to walk through the narrow paths between these rocks that have acquired their names and symbolic meaning over the centuries of their existence. Squeeze through the crevices, climb up the narrow paths and enjoy the amazing views. You may have the feeling that stories, people’s lives and even time itself has been petrified in the rocks around you. Sandstone “towns” with their gorges, towers, vistas and paths, sites where precious stones are to be found, castles, chateaux and fairy-tales featuring brave knights, beautiful princesses and rough and ready highwaymen: these are the characteristic features of the totally unique Bohemian Paradise, whose exceptional landscape has been listed among UNESCO Global Geoparks.
Unforgettable Sandstone Architecture
Originating in the Mesozoic Era as sediments at the edges of the sea, Prachovské Rocks with its vistas and stairs carved in stone, will arouse your sense of romantic adventure, along with another attractive “rock town” called Hrubá Skála which, coupled with the Bukovina arboretum, is situated between Valdštejn castle (the oldest in Bohemian Paradise) and the picturesque chateau of Hrubá Skála. You certainly should not miss seeing the ruins of Drábské světničky fortress, with its lovely views of the lowlands around the river Jizera, while other sandstone regions worth visiting are the Klokočské and Betlémské Rocks, Besedické Rocks with a labyrinth, and Suché Rocks, sometimes also called the Bohemian Dolomites. You should also consider taking the tourist track near the timbered farmhouse named Kopicův statek, which will lead you through a valley with a number of reliefs carved in stone depicting important figures from Czech History.
