Giant Mountains

Krkonoše lie in the North-eastern Czech Republic, spanning an area of 631 km2 and a length of almost 40 km. They rightly rank among the Czech best. It’s our oldest national park (since 1963) and it’s been a UNESCO biospheric reservation (since 1992).
 
They’re the most frequently-visited mountains, although this doesn’t detract from their beauty in any way. They’re magnificent and harsh at the same time, and you’d be hard pressed to find such varied, attractive natural splendour. They boast unique arctic-alpine tundra, a breath-taking panoramas with inimitable, poetically named peaks, meadows full of all sorts of rare flowers, deep valleys, rocky ridges, torrents, waterfalls, glacial lakes and secretive primeval forests.
 
Countless mountain chalets, where you can often find accommodation to this day, are another phenomenon. The cuisine is also worth trying – where else could you taste soup from bread yeast?
