The Rock Towns in Adršpach-Teplice is a natural tourist attraction in the Czech Stołowe Mountains near the Polish border. You can walk the tourist routes to see the most interesting rock formations from gigantic sandstones. There are two beautiful mountain lakes and waterfalls. You will pay for the ticket with the card - in 2018 it was 120 Czech crowns per person. You can enter with dogs :-)
Panorama of the rock town (Adršpašskoteplické skály) from the village of Adršpach.
Adršpašské jezero Pískovna - a mountain lake with azure water at the entrance to the Adršpašskoteplické skály nature reserve.
Tourist route in Adršpach Rock Town. There were not many tourists because we went on a trip in September in the middle of the week.
A gate to a rock labyrinth in the Adršpašskoteplické skály nature reserve. This is the largest attraction of its kind in the Czech Republic.
Narrow passages between giant rocks - here you can see the world from an ant perspective :-)
The sandstones in the reserve are almost 100 meters high - it is one of the best known climbing places in the world.
One of the most recognizable views from the reserve. Lookout: Small Panorama.
Adršpašské lake - you can take a short boat trip on the upper lake..
You can follow the yellow trail from Adršpach to the Teplické Rocks.
The trail to Teplice is along the stream at the bottom of the valley.
We were almost five hours in the Adršpašskoteplické skály reserve. Walking around the rocks we walked about 14 km. This is a longer trip. It is worth taking something to drink and eating with you.

During three days we visited 3 rock towns - two in Poland: Szczeliniec and Błędne Skały and on the third day we went to the Czech Republic. It's a good order. There are smaller reserves and rocks rather lower in the Polish Stołowe Mountains. The Czech rock city is really impressive.

ul. Górska 2
57-320 Polanica-Zdrój, Poland
Polanica-Zdrój is a small health resort near the Stołowe Mountains and Bystrzyckie Mountains, only 10 km from Kłodzko, less than 25 km from the ski station in Zieleniec and about 35 km from the Czarna Góra ski resort. We like to come back to this area because the Kłodzko Land is beautiful and very interesting. You can walk in the mountains and ski in the winter. You can enter a cave or a gold or uranium mine. You can admire architecture, cities, churches, big fortresses and mountain landscapes. Everyone will find attractions for themselves :-) This time, in September, we decided to see the Stołowe Mountains (Table Mountains) and Rock Towns in the Czech Republic.
