Nature reserves and monuments


You are standing by an important Natural Monument Pasák. It is one of the most extensive remarkable rock formations in the Jeseníky Mountains. It is a complex of furrowed rocks formed by intense frost weathering – remains of the Ice Age. Several small rocks of bizarre shapes tower above this complex, resembling of an anvil, cooking range or a rock window which is 3.5 m tall, 5 m long and 2 m wide. A legend about a petrified shepherd is associated with a slim, 18 m tall rock tower resembling of a human figure. Small karst formations are also noticeable at some places. Rare plant species grow here, such as the Broad-leaved Helleborine and Elder-flowered Orchid. Some bat species were detected here as well, such as the Brown Long-eared Bat and Geoffroy's Bat.
