Fellow Discoverers!

 

I’d like to invite you for another excursion to the underground caves and tunnels connecting the ‘Amerika’ quarries. Last year we did the standard 90 minutes long excursion to “Hagenova stola” and Mala Amerika quarry and it was pretty cool!

This time we’re going to experience the eastern part of the underground which stretches to Velka Amerika. This section is not normally shown to visitors because it is not secured with bars and railings. Therefore the group size has to be limited to max. 10 people and the excursion is strictly at participants’ own risk! 

 

 

LOGISTICS

 

1. We will meet on Saturday 27th of May at 8:30 am at the Prague Main Railway Station in front of the main ticket office, see the photo below.

 

 

2. After getting off the train in Karlstejn we’ll hike about 5 km (mainly uphill) to the entrance to the quarry plant where we will meet with our guide.

3. The Excursion takes about 70 minutes.

4. After the excursion:

A. If the weather is good, we will have a picnic lunch by “Mala Amerika”. If you want to swim in the quarry please beware that entering the quarry is officially prohibited under a fine up to 15 000 CZK and if you do so, it is entirely at your own risk!

The downhill walk back to the Karlstejn train station takes about an hour and we’ll aim to catch the train at 5:19 pm to be back in Prague at 6 pm.

Optional after-hike dinner in Prague.

 

B. If the weather is bad, we will head back to Karlstejn and take the first available train back to Prague.

What to take with you: Flashlight – it can be a mobile phone as long as its battery is able to last for the whole tour; Firm, non-slippery shoes; Warm sweater or overcoat – it is about 9°C in the underground all year round! Swimwear (if you want to have a swim in ‘Mala Amerika’ after the excursion), food and drink for picnic.

Helmets for everyone will be provided.
