    Magnifique description de tes promenades sur d’anciens volcans qui mettent en évidence l’intérêt géologique exceptionnel de ce pays… Les orgues basaltiques de Radobyl sont particulièrement belles. Elles représentent le contenu d’une ancienne chambre volcanique profonde dont le magma basaltique a formé des prismes hexagonaux en refroidissant. On observe le même phénomène dans la Chaussée des Géants en Irlande. La tectonique alpine a remonté les roches près de la surface et l’érosion a éliminé les couches qui les recouvraient.

    We did the hike with my dogo this weekend, quite weak legs as not used to hilly areas, but we made it!!! If anyone here the same like me – just do it slow and enjoy the forest trails. Amazing views from Milesovka – both outside and inside the chata on top, and Radobyl is perfect for picnic if weather allows. Autumn colors just starting and will add charm in coming weeks. Stayed in Marina Labe hotel – simple but has everything that’s needed, lake and mountain view from the balcony, dinner and breakfast right on the lake. Perfect hiking trip just an hour from Prague – pack your dogs and go 😉
