The Kralický Sněžník Mountains are the second smallest mountain range in the Czech Republic with an area of 76 km. On the other hand, its peak of the same name Kralický Sněžník 1424 m above sea level is one of the highest mountains in the Czech Republic. The area has a lot to offer. Because we are in the zone of the Czech Maginot Line. Where the visitor can get his money's worth, even if a military event called Cihelna is held here every year. We will ascend to Kralický Sněžník along the so-called line, which is along the border bollards with Poland.

Rabbits

Hůrka Artillery Fortress

Our first stop at the Fortress. There are countless of these Czechoslovak fortifications in the area. Because in 1938 the German border reached as far as Ostrava. After 1945, Germany lost much of its territory.

Shot down artillery fortress

The German Third Reich tested their conquests on these fortresses, as well as super-secret weapons. But even those did not cross the 3 meter thick wall.

Line

What goes a lot is Line. It is a very popular tourist route. Which he evaluates according to the strength of the beaten path. Because during our trip we met 3 people on Sněžník. And the kiosk is here at every step in the form of blueberries. The silence here is blessed.

Klepáč also Klepý

Mountain (roof) of two seas. From here, all rivers flow on our side into the Black Sea, from the Polish side then into the Baltic Sea. The Poles have it as the Trinity Mountain, which still mentions the North Sea.

Border

Nature on the border is very variable. It's not boring

Kralický Sněžník

Remains of a lookout tower that was blown up in the late 1970s. It is a pity that nothing has been built here in 40 years.

Evening Kralický Sněžník

The second night was breathtaking. What more could you want and more to say. For me, the two brightest objects are the planets of our solar system for me.
