Wallachian Rocks:  Off the Beaten Track on the Czech - Slovak Border

In the northeast of the Czech Republic lies Wallachia, a small but fiercely proud region known for its low mountains, placid sheep, traditional wooden architecture, folk dancing, and homemade slivovice (plum brandy).  

Around the village of Lidecko, near the Czech-Slovak border between Vsetín and Púchov, several incongruous masses of rock rise like sentinels from the wooded hills. Certovy Skály is right along the road, and convenient for local climbers, but Pulcínské Skály is more isolated and mysterious.  Both are an easy way to get a dose of nature and small-town Czech (or Wallachian) life, way off the tourist track.
