Adrspach Rock Town
The main tourist trail is clearly marked and assisted occasionally by ladders and stairs. Beside romantic walks among bizarre rock formations there are also lots of challenging climbing opportunities.
The spring of the Metuje River forms two waterfalls (called Grand and Small Waterfall) and a natural lake, where for as little as 30 Kc (approximately $1.50) you can go for a boat ride.
The rock town has unrepeatable charm in every season. In the last few years, the Adrspach rocks gained popularity abroad. Therefore it is advisable to visit the area during the weekdays or early morning, as on weekends and holidays there are crowds of people.
The entrance fee is 60,- Kc (approximately $3.00) for an adult and half of that for children.
From the town of Trutnov you can take a buss to the small village of Adrspach. From there a tiny single-carriage train, which winds and whistles it's way along the single track to a the town called Teplice. Exit the train at the station Skalni Mesto - The Rock Town. You can also take a train or a bus from all three previously named cities. It will take a maximum of a half hour from either of these towns.
