Day trip into Bohemian Paradise (Český ráj) - Prachov Rocks

Bohemian Paradise! Sounds so good, doesn't it? It is indeed an earthly paradise of Czech Republic that rejoices your heart and eyes.


Me and Irenka, my Uruguayan friend, picked this destination for a day trip away from Prague, took a bus from Cerny Most and got to the closest city to Prachov Rocks (Prachovské skály). In fact, Jičin is also called a gateaway of the Bohemian Paradise and it is around 8 km away from Prachov rocks. We knew there should be a bus that goes to Prachov, but we were optimistic, as google maps told us we could walk this distance in one hour and a half.



You can buy a map at the entrance, so you know where you are and how much time you'll need to get back. There are 3 trails (red, green, and yellow) and the longest one is 3,5 km.



It was cold at the beginning!

As you can see from the pictures, the place is very scenic.



How much time to spend there? 
A whole day would be perfect to explore everything, but you can also go just for a few hours and walk a part of it.

Kids? 
I'm not sure if I would have taken my kid with me would I have had one, but we saw a lot of kids, so I suppose it's actually ok and suitable for them. Just take care they don't slip. I know I'm overprotective.



Good to know! 

Before entering Prachov Rocks, check at the bus stop the timetable to get back to Jičin. The bus does not run often enough. When we finished exploring we wanted to take the bus, but it would have been too much time to wait for it, so we decided to walk again those 8 km. I was tired. But if I would have to choose again, I'd walk that distance again.
