Hranice Abyss (hranickapropast.cz) reviews
Quite an anonymous looking hole for such a great record/title. But something I didn't know before today. A gentle walk through well established paths in a forested area takes you to... The Hranice... more »
The history of the abyss is very interesting. I recommend going down to see the abyss from the inside. You can also take walk from Hranice to Teplice via the abyss. There are nice viewpoints, nature and it is not far at all.
Beautiful place. Deepest abyss.
