Geology

The Geopark Vysočina (Highland) is one of the 9 national geoparks in our country

The area of 200 km2 extends north and west of Telč. You will find here mainly granite and erosion formations formed by it. For example the monolith at Prague Castle is made of the famous Mrákotín granite. The stonemason tradition, pure nature full of ponds and UNESCO monuments in Telč create a unique symbiosis of history, culture and nature.

The area consists mainly of biotite granite (Mrákotín type) and biotite migmatite.
