The massif is 70% in Czech territory and 30% in Polish territory (where the massif is steeper). On the Czech side, Krkonoše became a national park in 1963. The Poles had done the same four years earlier.
The great glacier that once covered this region has now retreated. It has left a landscape of deep valleys, rounded peaks and steep slopes that delights hikers from all over the world. The name of the massif means "Mountains of Giants" ... but beware, it is not the Himalayas! Mount Sněžka, which dominates the nature park, peaks at 1,602 m. The points of interest are superb and varied: amazing granite formation, springs of the Elbe, wild forests, peat bogs, medieval gold mines, spa resort, the best downhill ski slopes in the country, marked hiking trails for cyclists and walkers. In the tourist information centres, resorts, you will find all the information you need to practice mountain biking, walking, paragliding, horse riding, rafting, paintball and many others... Then rush over here! But know that you won't be alone...
