Autumn trip around Bohemian Switzerland

After a few weeks I decided to go with my girlfriend somewhere on a trip. Our goal was to walk around a part of Bohemian Switzerland National Park.

We went by a train from Ústí nad Labem to Děčín where we had to change a train for a bus and we went to Mezní Louka, where our walk started. By the start we went little bit slower, because we had to stop almost every 50 metres to take a photos of beautiful fallen autumn leaves and colored forests. We were taking photos all the time and after a while we were at our first goal – Pravčická Brána which is a narrow rock formation and the largest natural sandstone arch in Europe. Such a beautiful place! We spent there about 30 minutes by taking a photos and we rested a little bit after a tough ascent.

Then we continued about an hour to Hřensko from where we went to marina of Edmundova soutěska. Again we took a lots of photos during the way and after 20 minutes we were at the marina. It was so beautiful there so we rested there for a while and then we were on our way back to Hřensko where we had to wait for a bus.

The bus arrived after 40 minutes of waiting and in Děčín we catched the first train to Ústí nad Labem and we went home.

It was such an amazing trip and if you ever will be in the Czech Republic I highly recommend you to visit Bohemian Switzerland National Park.

Podzimní výlet Českým Švýcarskem

Dne 28. 10. 2016, tedy na státní svátek, jsme s přítelkyní po delší době vyrazili na výlet. Naším cílem bylo projít se podzimním Českým Švýcarskem.

Po osmé hodině ráno jsme vyrazili vlakem do Děčína, kde jsme přestoupili na autobus, kterým jsme se dostali na Mezní Louku. Naše pěší tůra krásnou podzimní přírodou mohla začít. Ze začátku jsme šli celkem pomalu, protože jsme se každou chvilku zastavovali, abychom si nafotili krásné barevné lesy, zahrnuté barevnými listy. Fotili jsme skoro neustále a najednou jsme byli u jednoho z našich cílů, kterým byla Pravčická brána. K Pravčické bráně jsme došli asi za hodinu a půl, což jsem ani nečekal, že tam budeme tak rychle, takže jsme se mohli chvilku zdržet a odpočinout si.

Po půl hodině odpočinku jsme šli zhruba hodinu do Hřenska, odkud jsme se šli podívat k přístavišti Edmundovy soutěsky. Cestou jsme toho opět spoustu nafotili a po chvíli jsme byli na místě.

Chvilku jsme si odpočinuli a šli jsme zpět do centra Hřenska, odkud nám jel autobus. Na zastávku jsme dorazili s dvacetiminutovým předstihem a čekání se nakonec protáhlo ještě o dalších 20 minut, kvůli zpoždění autobusu. Za pár minut jsme byli v Děčíně odkud jsme jeli vlakem zpět do Ústí.

Výlet po Českém Švýcarsku v podzimním období se povedl a doporučuji tento krásný národní park navštívit.

How to travel around the Czech Republic on a budget! Tip for very cheap travelling!

Hello! If you wonder how to travel around the Czech Republic in summer at low cost, this article is just for you! Czech Railways (České dráhy) offer cheap ticket in summer for one or two weeks. The ticket is called Ticket for Summer (Jízdenka na léto) and it will cost you just 790 CZK (30 EUR) for one week or 1190 CZK (44 EUR) for two weeks of traveling. You can travel wherever you want in the Czech Republic by a train in 2nd class.

We live in Ústí nad Labem, it is situated in the north of the Czech Republic and it has great train connections with other cities. So every morning we traveled somewhere and in the evening we came back home. If you would like to travel on a budget, I recommend you to stay somewhere where you can be accommodated cheaply and do the same as we did. Or if you are an adventurer, you can find some train which goes through night and sleep there, it is possible too.

Here is a list of places we visited and I recommend you to visit them too.
These places we visited with my girlfriend in 2015: Karlštejn castle, Prague (4 times), Hradec Králové, Pardubice, Karlovy Vary, Liberec, Mariánské Lázně, Brno, Plzeň, Olomouc and České Budějovice.

These places we visited with my girlfriend in 2016: Brno, Karlovy Vary, Olomouc, Plzeň, Karlštejn castle, Velká Amerika, Bezděz, Máchovo jezero, Prague (3 times), Mariánské Lázně and Kutná Hora.

If we would travel for normal ticket price, we would have to pay more than 6000 CZK (222 eur) for one person in 2015 and 4000 CZK (148 EUR) for one person in 2016. It means together we saved 9620 CZK (326 EUR) in 2015 and 5620 CZK (208 EUR) in 2016.
