Since then it has guarded the valley of the River Jizera and has offered visitors amazing views from the main tower. We then move on to Malá Skála, on foot or by car, whichever you prefer. We then take a walk along the Vranov ridge, with beautiful views of Malá Skála, Suché skály, etc. (approx. 3 km).

We will have lunch at the Bouček farm in the village of Malá Skála. This timbered cottage attracts visitors not only for its excellent Czech cuisine, but also for its unique atmosphere.

After a good lunch we can visit the art collections and the historical exhibits in Josef Jíra’s gallery, which is on the 1st floor of the farm.

Our journey will then continue past Suché skály, a one-kilometre-long sandstone ridge, which was on the bottom of the Cretaceous Sea millions and millions of years ago. Tectonic shifts gradually rolled it over 90 degrees, to form this unique rocky ridge.
