Šumava a Čertovo jezero - The Bohemian and Devil’s Lake

The Šumava (Bohemian) Forest, together with the neighbouring Bavarian Forest, creates the most extensive forest landscape in Central Europe, called the "Green Roof of Europe“.

Devil’s Lake: the legend says that the devil drowned here with a stone tied to his tail by a young woman he wanted to take with him to hell. At that time he dug out a glen, where the lake is situated. All kinds of odd figures and gnomes are said to rise to the surface of the lake even today.
