Bohemian Switzerland • Climbing

Bohemian Switzerland is often called climbers' paradise. In the middle of the 19th century maiden ascent in the territory of the future Czech republic was undertook by Karl Beck. The rock, conquered by Beck, was named after him Beckstein. You may find it following the marked tourist trail from Mezni Louka to Pravcicka brana.

Today you may notice very strange small boxes at the tops of most rocks. In those boxes notepads with the signatures of the conquerors are kept.

If you overcome fear and decide to climb even a small rock you are certainly going to experience unforgettable feelings. But do not try climbing of your own accord. Rather address the local climbing club, where they are ready to help you.
