Visit of Kopic estate and rock reliefs

Kopic estate lies on the blue tourist route, halfway between Hruboskalsko and village Kacanovy. Because it is located away from the main tourist circuits, there are not so many tourists as in other parts of Hruboskalsko. However, it is worth to go here (1km one way from the South pass on the main tourist route Hrubá Skála – Castle Valdštejn /“Wallenstein”/), because you will see here both very well preserved farmhouse of Jizera type (unfortunately not open to the public), but mainly rock carvings of Mr. Kopic in the surrounding rocks. There is a small labeled circuit leading around them.
 

Rock reliefs

From the South pass it is about 10–15 minute of gradual walk down along the ridge between two deep valleys. Just before Kopic estate is a turning to labeled circuit around the rock reliefs. It is one of the few places in the Czech Paradise, where engraving into rocks was not considered as vandalism. Graphics from Czech history, myths and legends are on the rocks at different heights, so you will have to look around properly to notice them all.

Path between the rock reliefs

The path leads zigzag through wooded hillside with small rock towers. Especially for children it might be an interesting part of the trip.

Monumental engravings

Smaller images are replaced by relatively monumental works, especially if you take into account that they are the work of only one person.

Play of lights

Interesting are also moments when you go through and the light illuminates only the individual image and it is dark around – then there's quite a magical atmosphere. Is it coincidence or intention of the author?
