Hřensko and its gorges
A mysterious world of crystal-clear water, high rock walls covered with moss, and divine tranquillity. This describes the gorges near Hřensko. This picturesque village of half-timbered houses is the gateway to the Bohemian Switzerland National Park and also the place where the Elbe River exits the Czech Republic. The village of Hřensko is the best place from which to set off along marked trails to explore the beautiful scenery of this national park.
You can enhance your trip to the fabulous region of Bohemian Switzerland with a boat trip through the canyon of the crystal-clear Kamenice River, which is nestled between steep cliff walls soaring up to 150 metres. You can explore three different gorges here. Two legs of the journey can be completed only by boat. A boatman with a bargepole will lead you first through Divoká soutěska (meaning the Wild Gorge), where he will introduce you to the lively – even though petrified – inhabitants of the surrounding walls, and then to Edmundova soutěska (Edmund’s Gorge), where upon request he will release a waterfall for you!
