To describe the natural beauties of the region concisely, it shall be pointed out that nowhere in Central Europe so many diverse beauties of nature can be found on just a few tens of square kilometres. There are not only deep valleys and ponds refl ecting the towers of rock towns, but also many peaks and observation towers offering wonderful views of the country. Just climb to the top of the hills Kozákov, Veliš, Zebín, Tábor, Vyskeř or Kopanina and take a look around. The castles, chateaux, woods, sandstone rock towns and deep valleys change over to plains and ponds. No wonder the Bohemian Paradise is the oldest nature reserve in the Czech Republic. The fact that it has recently been proclaimed the first UNESCO Geopark in the Czech Republic only serves as a proof of the charm of the region and its diversity.
What you shouldn’t miss are defi nitely the rock towns – Hruboskalské Rock Town, Prachovské Rocks, Klokočské and Betlémské Rocks, Příhrazské and Suché Rocks, where the wind, rain, frost and sun sculpted bizarre sandstone formations. The architecture of the rock towns boasts of gothic grandeur, baroque extravagance and rococo ornamentation of detail.
