What to see?

1 - Karlštejn Castle

A large Gothic castle founded 1348 AD by Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor-elect and King of Bohemia. The castle served as a place for safekeeping the Imperial Regalia as well as the Bohemian coronation jewels, holy relics and other royal treasures. Located about 30 km southwest of Prague above the village named Karlštejn, it is one of the most famous and most frequently visited castles in the Czech Republic.

2 - Big America quarry

A partly flooded, abandoned limestone quarry near Mořina village. It is 800 meters long, 200 meters wide and 80 to 100 meters deep with a 18-metre deep lake on the bottom. Mining of the limestone was conducted in the first half of the 20th century. There are other quarries near-by, one of those is Malá Amerika (Small America) about 1,3 kilometers to the west. The quarries are connected with each other by long tunnels.

3 - Chrustenice shaft

The "Chrustenice shaft" was one of most important iron ore mines in Barrandien. Mining began here at 1861, when the area was being prospected and the deposit was opened from surface. At 1960s, the mine had 84 underground levels and was 426 meters deep. Most of underground is now flooded, but there is a mining exposition in upper levels. Mine trams resting in one of two by Neubauer-system reinforced entrance adits are also part of exhibition.

4 - Koněprusy Caves

A cave with three-storied system of passages and stalagmite and stalactite embellishment. The two upper stories are open to public, with the total length of the tour 620 meters. The cave features unusual karst shapes - the roses of Koněprusy. According to archaeological findings, the cave was not inhabited by people but only by animals of primeval age. In the second half of the 15th century, the cave became the ideal hideaway for money forgers' workshop.
