CZ: Pravcicka Gate – The Main Sight in Bohemian Switzerland
heading (paragraph): Others
The Pravcicka Gate is the largest sandstone gate in Europe. Its majesty is famous for Czech Switzerland, not only in the Czech Republic but also in the world, so there are many tourists during the season. Located 3 kilometers from Hřensko, the red marked tourist trail will lead you and the children will be able to get there. At the top of the gate, it is forbidden to enter, but do not worry, there are still plenty of places to enjoy the beautiful views of the surroundings.
This small village in the Decin region has always treated its visitors well. Jetrichovice belongs to one of the centers of the National Park Czech Switzerland Švýcarsko and the nearby Jetrichovice walls attract all types of visitors – families with small children or experienced climbers alike
If you go on a trip to the Czech Switzerland National Park, you should definitely miss one of the most popular parts - the gorge of Kamenice River near Hrensko, where you can also enjoy riding on a boat and many great rock formations.
With a span of 26.5 m and a height of 16 m it is the largest sandstone rock gate in Europe. It made Czech Switzerland famous only in our country but also around the globe, so when you go to our youngest national park for a trip, you should not miss the Pravcicka gate.
Near Decin there is the vast rocky area of Tiske Rocks, the westernmost area of the Labske Sandstones. Dozens of grandiose sandstone towers rise as high as 70 meters. If you happen to know the Chronicles of Narnia movies some scenes at the beginning of the Lion, Witch, and Cupboard movie were shot there.
The beauty of the rocks lays in their grey color, variety, uniqueness, and silence with which they stand in nature. The stone is inanimate but the rock breathes and beats like your heart once you are on the top. We set of to Pfaffenstein mountain and Barbarine rock pinnacle. Both of the localities are along Saxon Switzerland’s most beautiful trail.
