After 6 kms long ascent from Infocenter at Hřensko ve finally stood under the Pravčice Gate and cottage Sokolí hnízdo (The falcon's nest) where refreshment at restaurant is available. The entry to the Pravčice Gate is at fee. The Pravčice Gate is really magnificant. It is the highest sandstone gate in Europe. Its spane is 26 m and height 16 m. However, since 1982 tourists are not allowed to walk on its top as in its ridge during intensive visits of tourists a groove 80 cm deep appeared and the geologists warned that the vault might cave in as result of gradual thinning . Nevertheless there are several viewing points around the Pravčice gate from which we can get beautiful view of the surroundings.
