The Bohemian Paradise area is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the Czech Republic. One of the biggest tourist attractions is the area of rock formations in Prachov Rock City. Thanks to the powers of nature you can appreciate sandstone rock formations, in incredible shapes, one of the highest is 60m tall.
Prachov Rocks are an excellent area for hiking thanks to the many trails that run between them. You’ll be walking through thin cracks in the rocks, climbing up and down and enjoying the views from the top. One of the best views is from the Lookout Českého ráje, you can see a big part of the beautiful area of Prachov Rocks from there, including the magnificent Emperor’s Pass and Trosky castle – a symbol of Bohemian Paradise.
The closest town to the Prachov Rocks (5km) is Jičín, often called the gateway to Bohemian Paradise, and as a matter of fact, it’s quite an interesting destination in its own right. The large cobblestoned main square is surrounded by historic buildings, including the Valdštejn Palace, steeply spired Valdice gate tower and the old Gothic church of St. Ignatius from the 14th century.
If Jičín is the gateway to Bohemian Paradise, Turnov can be called its heart. It’s closer to the center of Bohemian Paradise and is the nearest town to many of the region’s attractions, such as Trosky, Kost, Hrubá Skála and Valdštejn castles, and to Hrubá Skála rock formations.
The tours take place from Monday to Sunday from 8:00 AM to approx. 4:00 PM. To book your spots, please send an email to Lukas in advance: firstname.lastname@example.org. Pick-up is from the parking lot P+R near Ládví metro station in Prague.
