The Bohemian Switzerland National Park is a great place to relax and recharge your batteries. There are more than enough tips for trips, you don't even have to just walk and ride a bike, in Děčín you can board a boat and enjoy a unique cruise on the Elbe. So where to go? The most famous destination is probably the Pravčická gate, the largest sandstone rock gate in Europe, then we recommend from Hřensko to the gorges of the river Kamenice and to Maria's viewpoint in Jetřichovice. If you stay for several days, you can visit the rock town of Tiské stěny in the Elbe sandstones, Děčín itself or visit neighboring Saxon Switzerland. There are no limits to trips.

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.
Just a few kilometers before the Elbe water leaves the Czech Republic, it flows past the majestic Decin Castle. The town itself and its surroundings offer plenty of attractions to visit, in addition to the castle and the Rose Garden, the Labské pískovce PLA and the nearby Bohemian Switzerland.
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.
Metal sound of carabiners, metal ladder, craps, sharp edges of the rock, unforgettable vista of Labe valley.
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.
Right behind Decin the gates of Saxon Switzerland open. The origin of its name come from the times of two Swiss young men studying in Dresden who said the area reminds them of home.
Amazing compound on the rock, a bending of River Elbe, everlasting fame, travellers' lectures, educative travel games for children.
