CZ, Svatý Jan pod Skalou – A Trip to the Heart of the Bohemian Karst – VIDEO

Published: 8.10.2019
The Bohemian Karst offers countless possibilities for beautiful trips - whether on foot, by bike or by boat. One of the most popular destinations is the village in the heart of the protected landscape area - Svatý Jan pod Skalou. Let's go to it together from the nearby village of Srbsko.

The path leads among others around Bubovice waterfalls. One of the unique karst meadows smelled from the distance with blooming St. John's wort, mushrooms in many places smelled in many places and huge crates and literally clumps of doves grew right by the road. Depending on the humidity, beech, oak and fir trees alternated with hornbeams, alder trees or hazel trees by the water.

In the village of Svatý Jan pod Skalou, the Church of the Birth of Sts. John the Baptist and the adjacent cave of St. Ivan. According to legend, he lived here and was buried in the 9th century. In addition, just below the window of the cave springs the healing Spring of St. Ivan.

I rarely miss the opportunity to climb a hill with a view. The limestone rock towering 150 meters above the church was no exception. Fortunately, there is a relatively well-groomed and unpretentious path besides one steep passage. Even so, count on the fact that you ascend as a decent sweat. As a reward, you will have a beautiful view of the entire valley of the river Loděnice, which flows through the village, and the surrounding limestone hills.

Just along the Loděnice river, I returned to Berounka in a very easy way and after a short refreshment in Serbia I went home. The whole Bohemian Karst offers many faces and opportunities to explore, yet it is very easily accessible.
