Visit the rock formation Pravčická brána

The Pravčická brána (German: Prebischtor) is a narrow rock formation located in the Bohemian Switzerland in the Czech Republic. With a span of 26.5 metres, an inside height of 16 metres, 8 metre maximum width and 3 metre arch, it is the largest natural sandstone arch in Europe, and one of the most striking natural monuments in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains.

It is considered the most beautiful natural form in Czech Switzerland and is the symbol of the entire area.

From the point of entry into the area, well-maintained trails and a staircase diverge to individual lookout points from which we can observe Pravčická Brána itself and take in the impressive views of the nearby and far away surroundings.

Several landscape scenes in the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe were filmed here. Because the Pravčická brána may no longer be climbed on, the scenes in which the actors appear to run over the arch were taken in the studio and pasted in.
