Let's Hike to Mount Říp!
Reserve your place on Discovering Prague &CZ website: https://discoveringprague.cz/event/lets-hike-to-mount-rip/ ------------------------------------------ Hey Discoverers! Říp is a solitary hill (455 m/1520 ft) raising from the lowlands of river Elbe, some 30 km/20 miles north of Prague. According to the legend recorded by the chronicler Kosmas in the early 12th century, a mythical tribal chief, “Praotec Čech“ (The Forefather Czech), led his people to the top of Mount Říp. Having ascertained the land around „abundant in milk and honey“, he decided to take possession of this country which was the beginning of the first Slavic settlement. There is a grain of truth in the legend: From the top of Říp, you can really see a large part of Bohemia. At least, when the visibility is good. HIGHLIGHTS • The view from the Czech national mountain • Visit to the Rotunda of St. George on Mount Říp • Guided tour of Roudnice nad Labem LOGISTICS & PLAN OF THE DAY We will meet at 9:15 AM at the Masaryk Train Station. Around 13:30 refreshment stop on the peak of Rip (there's a kiosk serving drinks and fried food), then tour of the Rotunda. 16:00 to 18:00 late lunch/early dinner in Roudnice plus guided tour of the town.
