A famous natural monument located in an ancient city of Bohuslav, founded in 1032 by Yaroslav the Wise.
The Granite Outcrop in Bohuslav, or so-called ‘Granite Pit,’ is an island of granite boulders, chaotically scattered between two distributaries of the Ros river. Scientists assume that the age of these boulders reaches 2 billion years. Red and grey granite rocks rise 10 to 12 meters high, forming a1.5 km long canyon. Here you can admire picturesque river rapids, surroundinga deep pool, the very ‘Pit.’ Two more smaller pits are located nearby. One of them adjoins with a pedestrian suspension bridge, the Lovers’ Bridge, that offers an amazing view of the river and the canyon. There are multiple small waterfalls around, where you can enjoy a whirlpool bath.
With the total area of 4 hectares, the Granite Outcrop in Bohuslav was recognized a local geological monument in 1994, and included in the Bohuslavets Regional Landscape Park in 2010.
Locals believe that the Bohuslav Granite Outcrop has a special energy and call it a power spot.
