I was scared at first that this walk will require a good physique but it does not. The parking lot is located right next to the beautiful view, so I suggest this activity also to coach potatoes.

My boyfriend and I decided to take a short (45 minutes) train to see this quarry but also Lom Malá Amerika. The walk wasn't so long nor difficult overall, so we managed to fit it all in a day trip from Prague! The scenery was...More

You can walk around whole quarry and see its beauty from every side. It's forbidden to go down as it is dangerous, but view from top should satisfy you anyway. As it's not operational for some time, so nature started to take over and it's...More

This was my first visit of velka amerika and I was horribly dissapointed. Although the scenery is so amazing, the most negative thing is the rubbish - it is everywhere (kids diapers, pizza box, bottles and so on)!!!!!

This is a must see in Czech Republic. Very nice nature around, it's nice to get there trekking or in mountain bike. The caves are breathtaking and huge. Something unexpected in this beautiful country.

I think that this place is really one of the Czech "must see" places. Park your car and walk around the swamped quarry. Incredibly blue water, incredibly deep valley and craggy rocks.
