We went to several rock formations in the area and this is the most famous one. But in our opinion not the most beautiful of all. It is still amazing offcourse. And it has a few little stands with drinks, ice cream and little souvenirs.

Nice day trip of walks. Several well signposted options and good map available from the car parks. Rock formations great for kids to explore and nice shaded woods for hot days. Definitely worth a day out

Looks like multi-levels adventure park - from stone "forest" with narrow ways between "stone trees" in the bottom to cliffs with flat areas and breath-taking views where is such a pleasure to contemplate and ponder. Parking personnel if friendly and English-speaking (which is not very...More

I only found a very crude regional map that was not very helpful. Cesky Raj is really a series of separate sights quite spread out. For example, there is a good trail from Turnov that follows the ridge towards Hruba Skala... More
