Walking the World: Bohemian Switzerland

by Gigi Griffis

As our time in Prague drew to a close, it was with great relief that we slipped out of the city by train, then bus, north toward the border of Germany, and into the national park known as Bohemian Switzerland.

We stayed in the small tourist village of Hrensko, a collection of hotels, vendor stands, and restaurants stretched out along the river before it winds its way into a gorge.

From there, we hiked. Up to the largest sandstone arch in Europe, down through tree-lined lanes and quiet forests, and through the gorge itself over the course of three much-needed, quiet days.

It was, hands down, the best thing we did in Czechia.

These are the photos I took along the way.

It was actually still summer, but I think it must have been a dry year since some of the leaves had already fallen/turned. But mostly green!

yeah it looks awesome almost untouched by humans, and in this day and age when everything seems to have been affected by human presence this is literally a breath of fresh air.
