  • Nothing much of the caste (Schaunsenstein in German) is left, but who cares when we get such wonderful views from the tops. The place lies near Malé Pravcická Brána and so the two definitely is worth....  more »
  • We did the red walk, it's a lot of climbing, but it's a very nice experience. You mustn't be afraid of climbing on steep chairs. Wonderful!  more »
  • Well, I didn’t expect this place to be that exciting. First of all - think twice about going there if you are scared of heights. It’s rather terrifying as you climb the steep ladders and everything what supports you from falling down it’s just a small metal barrier 😉 But the views from the top are amazing. I could admire them after about 5 minutes of recovering from the climbing bit 😁
  • Real hiking route here. Need some courage for those steep stairs.
