Camping to the wild Equipment for caravans

After we left the crowded Eagle's Nest and the Pravčická Gate, we continued to Hřensko. Although the road was mostly downhill and less demanding than the one we had before, it just gave us a little bit of work. But the surrounding nature was worth it. The last part of the trip was well done, on the road, and after a short snack at the stand at the beginning of Hřensko, we drove to the Kamenice river by the Edmund (sometimes also Silent) gorges. It was officially made available in 1890, the Wild Gorge, followed by it, eight years later. In the dock, we had to wait fifteen minutes for the boat to leave, and there were another few impatient people impatient with us. We really did not choose the best time for this trip.

When we settled comfortably in the boat, we could already enjoy the beauty of the rock canyon whose walls are according to the interpretation of a guide and ferryman in one person, sometimes up to 150 meters. Maybe some kind of trip might seem somewhat cheeky, but with a curious and humorous interpretation that was bilingual due to the presence of German tourists, it was actually quite interesting.

The wave of laughter in the majority of the present made an artificial waterfall, which is triggered by pulling on the steel wire, it was also interesting to look for the form of reliefs and various figures and animals where the ferryboat was recommended to look for them. Sometimes it made a fuse, and it took a lot of imagination to make a man present at some point. Edmund's cruise lasted about 20 minutes, we did not travel by the Wild Gorge, but we took a steep hill up to Mezná where we refreshed at Na Vyhlídce restaurant. I have to say that the beaten pint of beer came really good. Well, then we were left with our last trip to the Mezní Louka where we had another night under the tent before we could go on a journey home.
