My partner and I went to the Adršpach Rocks in October of last year. She never fails to pick fantastic destinations for quick getaways, most of which require at least a little bit of trekking. In this case, the rule held true.
The beach "Kolokytha" (which means pumpkin) is on the Kalydon Peninsula, the same peninsula as is the infamous, last active leper colony in Europe of Spinalonga. Despite being October, the sea was quite warm and pleasant.
Hrad Kost is the local (Czech) name of the Kost Castle, one of the best preserved medieval castles and one of the major tourist attractions in Czechia. As the rest of the world, Czechia is in lockdown at the moment, so the castle is not open for visits.
Continuing my autumn trips, I went hiking over the last weekend of September which happened to be a long one in Czechia. This time I went to the Krkonose Mountains which are the highest and most visited Czech mountains. I booked a great hotel.
All in all it was a great and relaxing experience the highlight of which was a 20 kilometer hike at ~ 1.300m height.
