Magical Waterfalls

Often during the hot summers we want to get away from the heat and go outside the crowded city, somewhere in the nature. Here are a few ideas for day trips to a number of beautiful waterfalls: a perfect way to spend quality time with the whole family in the wonderful Czech nature.

Rešov Waterfalls

Rešov waterfalls, located a few hours outside of Prague, have been a national reserve since 2013. Going through the Nízký Jeseník Mountains, the Huntava River forms a number of beautiful waterfalls. Apart from the waterfalls surrounded by beech trees, you will also see the canyon, different rock formations, streams, ferns and mosses. On the way you will see the abandoned Rešov Castle. You can walk through the park, or take a bike. There is a restaurant in the nearby village, Rešov, where you can rest and have a snack. 

How to get there:
By car: go onto Route D11.
The trip should last for about three and a half hours. There is a parking lot available.
