Paradise, Moravia 2004
One year we have made a
tour and one year we have stayed about thirty kilometers under Prague near
a reservoir. Czechia is a beautiful and
still a cheap country. (Except perhaps the center of Prague) I have selected
Prachovské Skály (Prachov
Eighty kilometers north of Prague,
under the Giant
Mountains is the
The most visited part is Prachovské Skály (Prachov
Peaks). The rock town was created through eroding of the originally compact table of
rectangular shaped sandstones of the latest chalk period with characteristic
basaltic places. It spreads out over
an area of 187 hectares.
We have driven from the Giant
is also a beautiful area) to the Prachov Peaks. On the rocks of the first
photo you can see rock climbers (very small) I think they don’t have a
fear of heights. For the photos it was better, if I had stood a little
closer to the green railing.
You can walk there very well. Also when you have fear of heights.
Moravia lies in the eastern part of Czechia. There
lies also the protected landscape area the
In this limestone area (about 92 km2)
are more than 1000 caves and gorges. But only 4 caves are open to
public. You can walk there very well too.
Here to see you such a gorge. It seems to bee a collapsed cave. I hope,
the other caves are more reliable.
Open air museum Roznov pod Radhostem.
southeast Moravia lies the city Roznov
It has a famous open air museum.
It was founded in 1925 by local activists determined to rescue the
characteristic wooden buildings. The museum is concentrated in three localities. The
Little Wooden Town with citizen timber buildings
and the church,
the Wallachian Village and the Mill Valley with timbered farmsteads, mills and
other village buildings.
We have enjoyed our visit!!
