Bohemian Switzerland

Bohemian Switzerland

A world of wild coves, chasms, sandstone cliffs and tabular mountains spreads out on both banks of the Labe River between Děčín and German Pirna. Its symbol is the unique Pravčická brána, the largest cliff gate in Europe, reaching an awe-inspiring 27m and the height of both arches goes up to 16m.
You can set out towards it from Hřensko, a former woodcutter settlement and the current gateway to the park. The settlement, with its 115m above sea level is at the same time the lowest built area in the Czech Republic. Another gem of this diverse countryside is the deep canyon of the Kamenice River, some segments of which are accessible only by water. A little boat powered by human strength will take us between the rock formations and the ferryman will acquaint us with the live and petrified inhabitants of the chasms… 
The unusual harmony of nature is given a finishing touch by numerous examples of folk architecture of carved and wood-framed houses in the municipalities fringing the borders of this unique territory. 
The Czech Saxon-Switzerland National Park is rightly ranked among the 21 most significant tourist regions in Europe.
