The partly flooded, abandoned limestone quarry is an attractive place for ramblers and adventurers and its specific look and size really resemble the mood of Wild West. Mining was conducted in an unusual way, by gradual digging of a huge pit (about 800m long, 200m wide and 100m deep), connected to other quarries by long tunnels from the first half of the 20th century.

The former limestone quarry resembles rather a wide chasm with flooded bottom. A small beach inside is accessible only through long tunnels from the first half of the 20th century, which were driven to several kilometres of rock and which make a complicated labyrinth.

As the name suggests, these are bizarre stone lids put on narrow conic rocks, resembling mushrooms. The lids were created due to differences in erosion intensity of sandstone rocks, with the harder, upper layer containing iron (up to 1 meter of width) and resisting erosion better than the lower rocks. The rocky lids are a typical feature of the protected wilderness area Kokořínsko, which had put it...
