One of the biggest attractions of Maloskalsko is the rock castle Frýdštejn. On the sandstone massif, with many rock centuries, a huge castle tower has been preserved to this day, from the top of which there is a beautiful view not only of the Jizera canyon deep below you.

Under the castle Frýdštejn

The first view of the castle is worth it. on a massive sandstone rock, as otherwise in the Bohemian Paradise, stands a massive castle tower. From here you ascend the stairs to the castle gate (entrance + opening hours)

After passing through the gate you will reach a small „courtyard“. The sandstone massif is heavily excavated and there are a number of rock „flats“

The best view from the castle is to the Jizera canyon. The huge peak of Kozákov and in front of it Sokol can be seen on the horizon. Deep below you is Malá Skála.

View down from the tower

From the top of the tower it can be seen that the castle is really built in height. The width had to adapt to the sloping massif.
