Google Translate:

Wolf's Lair at the Upper town is rocky ravine with a depth of 25 m, width of 40 m and a length of 200 m Its bottom is full of collapsed walls, boulders and ravines towers dark caverns holes. The pit is not a work of nature, created by the extraction of tin.


In undermined area collapsed ceilings and created huge drifts Valley, which people later called the wolf pit. Her ferocity increases that today is her area covered with high forest. The wolf pit us from the square in the upper Blatné lead a nice nature trail. It will also lead us around the remnants of the old placer and a moat.

On the slopes of the hill Blatenský can descend into the break down of the former St.. George - The ice pit, where he holds the cold air, and therefore there is a year-round ice (yes, even in July). After the battle against Napoleon at Leipzig from this mine imported ice to treat the wounded.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
