The Krkonose National Park (Czech: Krkonošský národní park) is the oldest national park in the Czech Republic . It is located in the northeastern part of the country, along the borders with Poland . It continues on the Polish side, where it is called Karkonosze. The Krkonose National Park occupies an area of almost 55 000 ha, and it was founded in 1963. On its badge, we can see the strictly protected plant Willow Gentian, which occurs very often in this area. The majority of the Krkonose National Park is covered by the Krkonoše Mountains with the highest mountain of the Czech Republic - Sněžka (1 602 m) . The Krkonoše Mountains are of Precambric to Palaeozoic origin, that means that they are about a milliard years old. Later, during the Hercynian orogeny, the mountains experienced an important process when the granite magma had penetrated into the core of the Precambric crystallic slate, and they created the Krkonoše granite massif with a thickness of up to 5 km. The Krkonoše Mountains got their final appearance during the Quaternary glaciation. The Krkonose National Park is rich in endemic species: organisms that can be found nowhere else in the world. We can also find here the so-called glacial relics - organisms that were able to survive from the last ice age. Mainly for these qualities, the Krkonose National Park was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1992. The most attractive area for tourists in the Krkonose National Park is around the mountain Sněžka . A chair lift starting in the town of Pec pod Sněžkou will take you to the top of the mountain. The valley Obří důl is an ideal place for a wonderful walk. The visitors can see here many rare species of plants, as well as small waterfalls. The entrance to the mining workings is also in the valley of Obří důl, at the former hut Kovárna. The tickets must be purchased in advance, at the gallery Veselý výlet in Pec pod Sněžkou . The Krkonose National Park has also become a popular skiing area, as it offers a variety of ski resorts with ski rentals, ski schools and plenty of maintained ski slopes.
