Adršpach-Teplice rocks

To be in Zdoňov and not visit a rock city which is couple kilometers away would be enormous sin! If you have not seen the Lovers, the Mayor and his wife, Sugar Loaf and the Giant’s Armchair you know what you need to do! Some places are only accessible by ladders (such as highly placed rock pond). Wheelchairs, mothers with strollers and less adventurous travelers can relax by the azure lake at the entrance to the site. The main entrance to Adršpach rock city is located around 4 kilometers away from the Forge. Length of the sightseeing tour is about 3,5 kilometers. In the middle of the trip you can take a detour to Wolf ravine, which connects Adršpach rock town with Teplice rock town. Route through Teplice rock town is about 6 kilometers long and runs along the education path. Besides Wolf ravine you can go back to Adršpach by a bike path which goes around the perimeter of rock formations or take one stop by the train. The stop is walking distance from the entrance to the rock city. We highly recommend you pay rock city a visit!
