Along the Czech-Polish Friendship Route to Sněžka

Route description:

Take the Czech-Polish Friendship Route by Špindler’s Hut. There is a regular bus connection from Špindlerův Mlýn. Take the red trail, which will take you up to Sněžka. Take a break by the Noon Stone (Czech: Polední kámen) on your way up the highest mountain. It is called “Noon”, because at noon people in Poland can see the sun right above that point. Look down into a Polish valley and you will see the Maly and Wielki Staw lakes before you reach Silesian Hut (Czech: Slezská bouda). From that point you can climb Sněžka by either taking the red hiking trail, steep but shorter, or the blue one, which also goes onto the Polish side, and which has an asphalt surface. When on Sněžka, you must not miss Poštovna Anežka. After enjoying views of all corners of Bohemia, go back down Sněžka to Silesian Hut. From there, take the blue hiking trail to Meadow Hut (Czech: Luční bouda). It is a perfect place for taking a rest, to have some refreshments and enjoy the local Paroháč beer. From Luční Chalet take the red hiking trail called Stará Bucharova cesta. Before descending to Svatý Petr, do not miss the Krakonoš vantage point, which will reward you with a gorgeous view of Kozí hřbety. Go on through the valley of Svatý Petr back to Špindlerův Mlýn.
