Hey for anyone who likes hiking, and would love to see the sights at the same time, here is an idea for you. I was here for an English camp 3 years ago and it was amazing. You can stay in a little place called Richtrovy boudy or any of the other little cottages in the area. It´s located a little outside of the town Pec pod Sněžkou. From there, you can actually hike to the highest mountain in the Krkonoše mountains, Sněžka. (Correct me if I´m wrong...isn´t it also the highest in CR???) You can take different trails to the mountain, as far as I can remember. I don´t remember how far it is, I would like to say 10k though...although it could be farther so don´t quote me on that. I do remember the hike taking all day though. Once you get to Sněžka, you can either sit at the restaurant at the bottom and get some ice cream or a drink, or you can continue walking to the top of Sněžka! It is a great view from there. Also, when you are at the bottom of Sněžka, you can actually cross the Polish border and get your passport stamped! Sweet huh. And you can look over at Poland as well. Anyhow that is my hiking idea, I wish to go there again sometime if I am ever in north CR. Here is some information that you might find handy: Učební středisko MŠMT Richtrovy boudy Richtrovy boudy 542 21 Pec pod Sněžkou, tel./fax: 499/896 249 tel.: 499/796 298 http://www.pecpodsnezkou.cz/pict/foto/fotka42.jpg http://www.pecpodsnezkou.cz/index_en.html Have fun!!!!
