Čertovy Hlavy – Devil’s Heads

If you’re looking for an easy-peasy day-trip from Prague with kids, we recommend Čertovy Hlavy aka Devil’s Heads. This huge pair of 9-meter rocks peek out at a distance to the right as you turn the bend into Želízy village.

These rock sculptures in the Central Bohemian Region of Czechia were created by Václav Levý in 1841-1846. People love to call it ‘the creepiest place in the Czech Republic’. Although the sculptures have been damaged over time due to weather, they still look amazing. Children love to climb up the rocky path.

The rocks are easily accessible if you follow the blue trail from the municipal office in Želízy. The trail also leads to Klácelka cave which has the carvings of prominent heroes and personalities from Czech history.

LittlePanda Tip: Pack a snack, there are very few restaurants in Želízy. If its summer, pack some sunscreen and insect repellent. This is a great walking trail for families with children. But access to prams and wheelchairs is limited.
