Spindleruv Mlyn is surrounded by mountains that are known for their uniqueness. The summits of the Giant Mountains are unique for naturalists who sometimes call them the Arctic island in the middle of Europe. This is not only because of the harsh climates at the peaks - the boundary ridges are the first barrier in the way of the winds blowing from the cold seas in the north and northwest - but also because of the striking similarity of the mountain relief and nature to the Scandinavian mountains far north. In the last ice age, the Arctic has come here from the Arctic and has remained here to this day even after warming, thanks to the cold climates on the peaks. If you are attentive, for example, you will hear the beautiful voice of the Bluethroat tundra at the Úpa peat bog below Sněžka, or you will see the inconspicuous blackberry blackberry - these are just two examples of ancient visitors from the north who have settled here.
The slopes and bottoms of the karas are also extremely interesting - glacier-hollow valleys, where funnels have a colorful mixture of plants and small animals, which have been blown by winds from different parts.
The lower slopes of the mountains are interesting for the peculiar landscape, which was created for centuries by the interaction of nature and the building of human farming.
There are so many reasons why the local landscape has been protected since 1963 by the Krkonoše National Park. Help us keep it for the next generation and YOU ...
