Landscape[edit]

The landscape of this area is very special. The relief and geology are extremely diverse. The mountain range is intersected by the Elbe River and the difference between the lowest and highest elevations is more than 700 meters. The mountains have a unique cone shape, thanks to their volcanic origin, rising from the flatland. The highest mountain is Milesovka (837 meters). The landscape is diverse, from fields in valleys to pastures, orchards, vineyards and forested hills.

Flora and fauna[edit]

In number of plant species, this area is one of the richest in the Czech Republic, due to varied types of biotopes: oak forests, dry grasslands or rock steppes. Several species have survived since the Ice Age and some plants are typical for South Russian steppes. Several unique insect species can also be found here.
