Bubovice waterfall, Solvay´s Quarry and St. John under the Cliff

Sat, 12 March 2022

We will start our hike in the village of Srbsko. Almost immediately we will find ourselves in a beautiful forest hiding the gurgling stream of Bubovice waterfalls. The path will lead us to the viewpoints revealing industrial scenery of Solvay´s quarry. The quarry was established in 1916 and the mining works started in 1918. During WWII the quarry was expanded and served for German military needs. Unfortunately, it is possible to visit the quarry itself (and the open air museum of mining that was established in 1993) only during the summer. But we will walk through the area giving you a pretty good idea of how the place looked like in the past. We will continue to the village of Svatý Jan pod Skalou (Saint John under the Cliff). The cliff that rises above the village offers a picturesque view of the village itself and mountains that surround it. We will end our trip in a small brewery in Beroun.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING?

We recommend comfortable hiking or running shoes, some water, fully charged phone, warm and waterproof clothes in case of raining. We will end our trip in a small brewery in Beroun.
