Lovos

The Great Lovos, built with alkaline basaltic rocks, with its peak reaching 570m above sea level, is a prominent feature of Lovosice town. The very top is actually composed of two cones, The Great and The Small Lovos, also called Kybicka (489m above sea level). Kybicka is unlike the Great Lovos phonolite (clinkstone) hill. Because of the high degree of preservation of natural habitats, plentiful occurrence of rare species of fauna and flora and the overall attractiveness of nature, Lovos is rightly ranked among Europe´s major sites Natura 2000. One can find wide variety of vegetation here, from grasslands on the southern and southwestern slopes, to forest-steppe formations and scree woodland growing especially on the northwestern and northeastern slopes. The scree woodland is mainly composed of white oaks and linden-trees. New species of crane was first described in the rocky forest-steppes on the top of Lovos and got a name Sorbus Bohemica, precisely because of the unique presence in the territory of Ceske stredohori (Czech Central Mountains). As for the flora, one can find protected undergrowth such as summer cypress, rock madwort or pasqueflower here. To get to the top of the hill one can follow green trail from Lovosice town, or blue trail from Oparno town, which goes along with educational nature trail Lovos. Yellow trail leads from Kostalov town through Borec hill and Bilinka town. The climb is rewarded not only by a 360° view of Elbe lowlands and peaks of Ceske stredohori, but also by a tourist cabin with an interesting history. The cabin was built in 1891, improved over time and expanded to a hostel in 1930. The structure was usually heavily damaged during vacancies but underwent many reconstructions and now-days offers a standard level of service including food and accommodation.
