02Adršpach-Teplice Rock Town

The Adršpach-Teplice Rocks Town is not a town built by people but an unusual set of huge rock formations in northeastern Bohemia, Czech Republic.

“The rocks take the shape of pillars, columns and walls and create a fascinating labyrinth to explore.

The area is protected as a national nature reserve and also hosts one of the largest permanent breeding sites of the peregrine falcon in Europe. Visitors are only allowed to visit certain areas of the reserve and have to follow the marked trails to protect the birds.

During the Cretaceous Period (145-70 million years ago) at the bottom of the ocean sandstone formed in the area and was later on shaped by water, wind, sun and ice. Almost every rock in the reserve has been given a distinctive name due to the interesting shapes created by erosion.” The Earth Story
