This was my first visit to the region and even though the weather was typically damp and foggy for the time of year, the landscape is very beautiful. Great for hiking (and climbing), I’ll definitely be back.

We spent 10-11 days in the area hiking and visiting attractions. For hiking there are many well-marked and well-maintained trails. The scenery is stunning, it's not at all crowded, a hidden jewel. The best hike was in Czech republic to Prebischtor and the Kamenice gorge,...More
