Bohemian Paradise

The Bohemian Paradise Geopark is designated as the territory with a wide variety of geological and geomorphological phenomena; paleontological, archeological and mineralogical sites that provides a notion of the Earth evolution. Three geologically dissimilar territories meet here; and that is why the diversity of inanimate and living nature is that exceptional.The landscape is distinguished by its high concentration of natural and historical monuments while also demonstrating the influence and importance of natural conditions on the economic and cultural development of society. The territory of the Geopark has repeatedly been a seabed and a lakebed over the hundreds of millions years with a volcanic activity on several occasions. All this has resulted in a landscape of wild rocks, volcanoes, karst phenomena, rivers, romantic valleys, forests, meadows and ponds.

The Bohemian Paradise Protected Landscape Area was declared as the first one within the country in 1955. With an area of 833 km2, the geopark is well beyond this area.

For its extremely valuable natural, geological and landscape values, the Bohemian Paradise Geopark was involved in the European Network of Geoparks in 2005 and, in 2015, it became the only member of the UNESCO Global Network of Geoparks in the Czech Republic.
The UNESCO Global Geopark Bohemian Paradise is managed by the non-profit company Geopark Český ráj o.p.s. The company's mission is to preserve its natural and historical heritage, apply research and science findings, educate the public and create good conditions for ecotourism and sustainable development in partnership with local communities.

Geopark je velkolepá učebna v přírodě. Má co nabídnout studentům jakéhokoliv věku od předškoláků ke školákům, vysokoškolákům i studentům universit třetího věku. Máme v úmyslu rozvíjet tyto stránky, které vám pomohou získat co nejvíce z Českého ráje, postupem času, bez ohledu na úroveň vašich zájmů a odborných znalostí. 


Support of science is ranked among the main objectives of geoparks. The society of Geopark Český ráj o.p.s. is not a scientific institution by itself, anyway, it collaborates with the respective institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Geological Survey, universities and other organizations.
