Photographer's Note

Pravcicka brána (Pravcicka gate)

is a massive bridge-shaped rock, 30 metres in span and up to 8 metres in width, rising 16 metres above ground level at an altitude of 435 metres. It belongs to the largest and most beautiful amongst the 88 rock bridges registered in the world (of which the best-known can be found in Utah and Arizona).

This rock bridge is located in NP Bohemian Switzerland, 130 km north from Prague near border between Czech rep. and (East) Germany. In this NP and neghbouring NP Sachsiche Sweiz (in Germany) you can find many wonderful sandstone rocks and other interesting places.

This composition contains only upper and central part of rock bridge, because below span is located non-photogenic tourist restaurant.
