Zlatý vrch National Natural Monument is located on the peak of the same name (657 m), in the Česká Lípa district near Česká Kamenice. A quarry was built on its hillside around 1870. The quarry originally had two floors. The length of the vertically erected columns reached 18 meters. Because the basalt columns were well developed and slightly cracked, they could be broken up to 6 meters long. They are said to have been used in the construction of seawalls in the Netherlands. The road here is easily accessible by car, in the vicinity you will also find the Silver Quarry and a memorial to the fallen in the battle of Studenec, which took place here on 18–21. July 1757 between Prussian and Habsburg troops.
