Picturesque Giant Mountains (in Czech called Krkonose) are the highest mountains in the Czech Republic and throughout the Sudeten system. They are characteristic by bare rounded ridges with stone slopes under the peaks and deep valleys. The highest mountain Snezka (1 603 m asl) is compared to other peaks sharper and clearly dominates the entire mountain range. There are also several nice waterfalls, beautiful upland meadows with peat bogs. River Elbe (in Czech called Labe) springs here – it is one of the longest rivers in Europe. Along the longest and highest Silesian ridge leads the state border with Poland.
