Pravcicka brana arch

One of Bohemian Switzerland’s most stunning natural formations is undeniably Pravcicka Brana. This natural sandstone arch, a symbol of the region, is a truly impressive natural formation that no visitor to Decin should miss seeing. Its great size is even more astounding up close. The arch spans 26.5 meters at a height of 16 meters and is 7 to 8 meters wide. At its narrowest, the bridge is only 3 meters across. The upper surface is 21 meters up.

Climb one of the neighboring rock formations for a great view of the arch.

There are several paths leading to this wonder. A long, easy walk heads from the parking lot in Mezni Louka, following the sandstone cliffs for 6 km. A shorter, more demanding route starts at the paid parking lot in Hrensko, the lowest-lying town in Bohemia, and climbs straight up to the arch.

Bus no. 434 will take you from Hrensko to Mezni Louka, or try the Hrensko Express mini-train.
