Bohemian
Switzerland
The area called Bohemian
Switzerland (České
Švýcarsko) is a picturesque
region near the German
border, where the Labe River
leaves the Czech Republic and
enters Germany, where it is
called the Elbe.
Pravčická Sandstone Gate
The Pravčická brána rock
formation is the largest
natural sandstone arch
in Europe and is an ideal
destination on an all-day hike
in the area of Hřensko. It is
not accessible by car, and the
trail is not suitable for prams,
bikes or wheelchairs. The best
starting point is Mezní louka
or Hřensko.
Hřensko, navigation
along the Kamenice River
The straits of the Kamenice
River are so narrow in
two places that a boatman
must ferry you between the
towering rocks. This is a very
popular trip with children.
Boat ride between Hřensko
and Děčín
A boat trip through the gorges
of the Labe (Elbe) River is
romantic and relaxing, and
you can enjoy the beauty of
Bohemian Switzerland from
a new angle while having
lunch on board.

comes alive with herbalists,
numerologists and
esotericists, who all come
here to attend the so-called
Magic Congress.
