A. Komenský with his homeland. From Pink Pole, we continue on Černá Voda to Královec on the border with Poland. If we do not want to go to Poland or return immediately, we can stop at the inn and strengthen our way back.
This route is also suitable for our improvisation. From Královec we can go further to Bernartice and through Křenovská or Lampertická luka to return to Žacléř in different directions.
Excursions to Křenov, Bernartic
These excursions can be different every time, depending on your imagination. The starting point for both types of trips is the settlement and Na Pilíři Street.

was built as part of the most interesting system of dams in the Krkonoše Mountains to prevent floods. These locals were in horror at the end of the 19th century. Extensive rebuilding works that were subsequently carried out in the Elbe, Jizera and Upa basins are evidence of the championship of our ancestors, their example being the Devil's Crow. Its barrier has remained almost complete and fully functional today. Thanks to the high architectural art achieved by modest technical means there were built 43 transverse and 194 longitudinal stone reefs, about half of the stone for this purpose was obtained from a quarry above the mouth of the Red Stream. Nowadays, in the Devil's Mine, a trail that leads the public with this technical attraction leads to the Čertova Strut.
