Rock town with castle
Hruboskalsko competes with Prachov rocks for the most popular tourist rock town in the Bohemian Paradise. You can admire here beautiful panoramas not only of interesting rock formations, but also distant views of Kozákov ridge (“Kozákovský hřeben”), Giant Mountains (“Krkonoše”) and Ještěd. Except for it there is also nice castle Hrubá Skála, castle Valdštejn (“Wallenstein”) and interesting Kopic farm (“Kopicův statek”) and a short way from here also reliefs in sandstone rocks. It is possible to combine here easy hiking circuits suitable also for small children with more difficult ones, where you can expect hundreds of stairs in the center of the rock town.
