53 – Raná and Oblík

If you enjoy hillwalking, head to the district of Louny, only one hour from Prague, and climb Raná, then Oblík!
My recommendation is that both be scaled in the same outing, simply because; the best view to be had of Oblík is from the summit of Raná, and vice-versa!
The mount Milešovska of which the ascent is documented in my blog post 23, is known as the Queen of the České středohoří (Bohemian central uplands or moderately high mountains). In comparison, these two extict volcanoes – Raná and Oblík – could be nick-named The Maidservant and The Page !

  1. We did both Rana and Oblik today. I have finally ticked this hike of my to do list, as it has been haunting me for some reason since i first saw this hike posted. Quite demanding to do both, but definitely manageable and beautiful views from top of both. Best to go when it’s not too hot and not raining as rocks and dirt quite slippery on steeper parts. Also not much shade, but hey, that means open views all the way up and down. Both me and Šata the dog are tired and happy we did this in the company of another girl & dog pack. Thanks for posting this!
