This attraction is the location of quarries that were once in use. This particular quarry is massive and deep. Parking is limited so I recommend choosing a weekday not during the summer tourist high-season. Also, parking consists of dirt areas cleared out so try to park accordingly that you can't get blocked in by another.

There is no charge to this site and there are a few outlooks from which you can look over the site. The path around the quarry a just a dirt path that become muddy when it rains a little, so dress accordingly. During our visit we saw people stray outside of marked areas. To each their own, but doing so in my opinion could lead to tragic consequences because the fall down into the quarry is a long one.

As I mentioned before this site doesn't have a true path, and will be a big challenge for anyone with physical walking disabilities. Still, it is a nice visit and I can recommend it. If you are visiting the Czech Republic for a short time, then I wouldn't put this on your list because there are better places to see.

If You are already tired of sightseeing the city or castle Karlštejn, You can take a trip to the old quarry Velká Amerika. It is located only 20 km from Prag and You can easy get there by car or train. Do not expect any comfort there, but You can enjoy great views on the querry. Entrance to the quarry is prohibited because danger of falls. You can simple go around on the path. On the opposite site of the parking area is the best view to the quarry. Only few steps away is quarry Mexiko. A smaller and hidden brother of the big one Velká Amerika. the is a memorial to political prisoners working as slaves in the quarry in 1949- 1953. If You if you still have some time left, You can take a walk to another quarry- Malá Amerika, which is only few minutes away. I would recomend to visit this attraction on sunny day, at worst not on rainy days. The trail arround is then very muddy.

Surprisingly nice walk with amazing views. Worth a visit when in Prague, even if you're on a budget.

Underwhelming as everything was roped off, water levels low, no info in english on the signs. Locals swimming but obviously a hidden track somewhere (good for them). Did a big hike to get there and around from east to west but the views are disappointing. No where to sit at all on the entire walk as i had packed a great lunch to enjoy. Could be better utilised

Not easily accessible travel! No clear information.
Surprisingly, it's closed and not allowed to enter! Waist of time to go to just watch from a small window on the road!!!! Quite a pity!
It's such a beautiful place that is hidden and not being enjoyed!
They claimed its dangerous but that's not true because there's a build entry drive through tunnel connecting top to bottom as an incline slop. But apparently its private for certain people only and no description of contact available to for entry renting or visiting permits.

I was scared at first that this walk will require a good physique but it does not. The parking lot is located right next to the beautiful view, so I suggest this activity also to coach potatoes.

My boyfriend and I decided to take a short (45 minutes) train to see this quarry but also Lom Malá Amerika. The walk wasn't so long nor difficult overall, so we managed to fit it all in a day trip from Prague! The scenery was lovely and we wish we had arrived earlier to have more time to finish off our sketches.

If you plan to do your trip to Karlštejn you should definitely save some time for Velká Amerika. It is beautiful place and you can also do a bit of hike and go down to the water. Definitely worth the picture too:)

This old quarry is officially not open for public but offers a great view. It is easy to walk around it, however going in to the quarry is a bit more complicated and dangerous.
