A Visit to Moravian Karst

I was told many times by locals here that visiting Moravian Karst is one of the "must-do-things" while in Olomouc. Needless to say, trying the stinky local cheese, Olomoucké syrečky, is another one.

Thanks to my colleagues with warm hospitality, the trip was well-arranged and all I did was just to follow them and have camera with me. It is located nearby Blansko. Well, I'd rather say it is north of Brno in the eastern part of Czech Republic.

Around the region, there are roughly 1,100 caves and four of them are open to public, according to Wiki. We went to Punkva caves, the most popular one, and Macocha Abyss. In order to take photos there, you are required to pay additional 40 CZK (equivalent to 2 USD) but it is worth it. I hope that my photos will be able to convince you to do so...

It's just bunch of breathtaking sceneries coming up one after another!!!

The tour is available only in Czech language unfortunately.

As you can imagine, it's pretty cold there.

 I would highly recommend to visit there if you have a chance.

This is Weekend Reflection entry.

To be continued.
