They been there:

On the red tourist route connecting Prachovské skály with Mladějov you will find a small rock castle Pařez. As it is close to it and a small parking lot is available not only for long-distance tourists for a short tour. Here you will find mainly rock caves, similar to other rock castles in the Bohemian Paradise

A pond near the Pařez castle

If you do not find a long-distance tourist route, then your starting point for the castle will be by the pond below Pařezská Lhota (there are several places to park and the castle is only a few tens of meters away)

View of Stump from the pond

The castle was exhibited on a solitary rock massif. If you want to see it from a distance, it is better to be here at a time when the trees are still without leaves. In 2004, everything around it was felled and the view was great (see a small historical photo), unfortunately it is overgrown again

A long staircase leads to the castle. You will also find an educational sign about the history of the castle

The top plateau of the castle

Finally we are at the top of the castle, where it becomes interesting. The main attraction here are the rock chambers

Descent through the gorge

The advantage of Stump is that you do not have to go back the same way. The path continues through an interesting gorge between the rock walls. However, we will not leave for a while

From the rock plateau there is quite a nice view of the adjacent pond and the lower part of Pařezská Lhota

Way back

If you go to Mladějov you will continue along the red road. If you park by the pond, you can go back directly under the castle (where the marked path leads) or go around it on a footpath from the south side, where you can see the rest of the walls
