Ceske Svycarsko (Czech Switzerland) National Park
Location: Czech Republic
Never overlook the natural beauty outside of the city. This northern Bohemian national park boasts beautiful scenery for hiking, with endless forests and a breathtaking country side. So beautiful, in fact, that the Chronicles of Narnia were shot here. Students take a hiking trip through these hills and forests, with the target point of Pravcicka brana (Pravcicka gate), the biggest natural stone gate in Europe. This park is, in fact, famous for its sandstone cliffs, pillars and land bridges. It houses the largest sandstone canyon in Europe and because of this, a large body of water once rested there, leaving fossils of sea animals seen in the cliff walls. Should weather and time permit, students may have the opportunity to take a boat tour. Throughout the park, people often site lynx, eagle owls, and peregrine falcons. Czech Switzerland is a 2.5 hour train ride through the Czech landscape from Prague.
