Just WOW! The beauty and its mountainous view remained me the beauty of Switzerland. Interestingly, this place is also called "Saechsische Schweiz", in English "Saxon Switzerland". A lovely place that is highly recommended for you all.

What a wonderful trip. The park is beautiful and very much worth the drive to see it. Our hike was at an easy pace. We had a wonderful lunch at the park. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Prague.
