Duty Kamen is a little sandstone ledge. It is about 600 m long and 20-30 m high. The ledge lies 2 km southeast of the town Cvikov
, above the valley of the Boberský Stream, in the Czech Republic
. The territory has been protected since 1955. The point of protection is mainly the crumbling sandstone pillar, caused by eruptive rocks. This phenomenon is most evident right here at Duty Kamen. It is visible in several places, but it is best developed on the rock knob, which is 2.5 m high, and it is situated approximately in the middle of the rocky ledge. Duty Kamen was used for sandstone mining in the 19th century. Even today, you will see here the remains of mining in the form of large pits. On another circular rock stands a sundial, today almost destroyed.
