Last week we got finally closer to our goal – the fabulous Macocha gorge. First we took a look at it when we were at Dolni Mustek. Then we went up to see its glory from above from Horni Mustek.
Our walk along the Macocha Nature trail led us to the bottom cable car station which was launched in May 1995. We found ourselves at the altitude of about 361 meters. Our goal was Horni Mustek above the Macocha abyss. Horni Mustek is more than 130 meters higher.
Today we continue in our journey across the Moravian Karst. We have explored the Katerinska Cave and returned to Skalni Mill. Then we took an asphalt road towards the bottom station of the cable car. The cable car was supposed to take us up to the famous and popular Macocha Gorge.
We had paid our visit the House of Nature once we reached Skalni mill, a locality near Blansko district town, also thought about as the entrance to the Moravian Karst. We had also seen some of its surrounding. The trail going to the Katerinska cave is right behind this recently opened exhibition.
Once we introduced you the new interactive exhibition in the Moravian Karst Nature House we move bit further. Today we talk about our starting locality which is called Rocky Mill. This one is unique for many reasons.
In the middle of a surface mine territory and brown coal, there is an oasis of peace, a fabulous place – Bernard Homestead. Join us to remember how this place once lived, how animals were raised, and how traditional crafts were performed.
Only couple of days ago, a unique interactive exhibition has been opened in the heart of the Moravian Karst (at the meeting point of Suchy and Pusty Zleb) near Skalni Mill. The exhibition take you through the history of this place in a very innovative way.
Parked cars with Prague license plates at ancient trees is a thing that you would see if you had travelled in summer to Kacerov (15 km from Rychnov nad Kneznou). In the following season, Kacerov becomes a solitary place. I love it for one concrete location – a church and its cemetery.
Three very popular place are scattered across the hills looming above the center of Marianske Lazne. You can get there either by following a nature trail, by cable car or by car. These places are: the Czech scaled sights park, Hamelika observation tower, and fairy-tale characters in the garden in front of Krakonos hotel.
If you hike in less known and popular localities with less tourists to meet instead of picking places that look good in some travel brochure, than the place which is matter of today’s article is the best for you. Make a trip to Horni Castle which is near Straze nad Ohri.
