The romantic sandstone cliffs Tišské Stěny
(Tisá Walls, Tyssaer Wände) (height up to 70 m) [right] were formed
in the Cretacious period and are the remains of an originally compact sandstone
plateau. This eroded into picturesque rock formations which are known
by names such as Little Cow-shed, Woolfs' Gorge, Knights' Cave, King's Wall,
Rudolph Gate, Nuns, Camel, Pharmacist, Elephants' Legs, Head of Janus, Burgomaster, Hall of Shells.
