The Czech Republic has a lot of beautiful places, but if you want to try to visit unknown places, especially places with a little mystery, the following 7 places are worth a visit.
1. Hluboka Castle
While most visitors to the Czech Republic want to go to Prague Castle, Karlštejn, the country has countless other majestic castles that are well worth a visit. Only 90 minutes from Prague, Hlubova Castle is very little known, it was built in the 13th century.
Hluboka Castle is very unique, with a bit of mystery, all the furniture and decorations have kept their original shape. If you come here, you can visit the kitchen, the armory, the beautiful garden inside.
2. Abyss of Macocha
This is the largest canyon in Central Europe 138m deep and 174m long. It is a giant sinkhole, created by the subsidence of the surrounding caves several centuries ago. As a result, it has created a spectacular space where rare flowers flourish. There is an underground river inside, providing water for lush plants to grow. The scenery in this place at a glance resembles the underground world, very few people know about.
You can take a tour of the nearby Punkva caves, to explore the stunning Macocha abyss.
3. The Stone City Hruboskalsko
This stone city is located in the Bohemian national park. Hruboskalsko is made of natural sandstone, with unusually tall columns and interesting fractures. This is a favorite place for those who like to climb mountains, or love thrills, who want to discover the mystery of this place.
If you’re a hiker, it’s best to go to the top of the hill for a view of Hrubá Skála castle in the distance.
4. Adrspach National Forest
The Adrspach National Forest is a hiker’s paradise. The biggest attraction here is the Teplice Rocks, natural sandstone outcrops that look like giants from afar.

The ruins of Trotsky Castle are magnificent, it is located on the top of a basalt volcano, not far from the stone city of Hruboskalsko. The Trotsky is a 14th-century wonder, well worth a visit, but overlooked by many Czechs. This castle was abandoned because it burned down in 1648 during the war. Since it was abandoned for so long, it has now become an important part of the magnificent Czech landscape.
