Panská skála is a Czech name for a natural landmark situated near the town of Kamenický Šenov in the Liberec Region, in northern Bohemia. The name can be translated as “the Lord’s Rock”. Due to its appearance, it is colloquially known also as Varhany (“pipe organs”).
Panská skála is a 595-meter-high basalt rock formation. It is composed of columnar basalt, which is a type of volcanic rock that forms when lava cools and contracts. The columns are hexagonal in shape and are up to 6 meters tall.
The formation of Panská skála is thought to have been caused by a volcanic eruption that occurred about 30 million years ago. The lava that erupted cooled and solidified, forming the columns. Over time, the surrounding rock was eroded away, leaving the columns exposed.
The landscape around Panská skála is characterized by rolling hills, forests, and meadows. There is a small lake at the foot of the rock. The area is a popular hiking and rock climbing destination.
Panská skála is a protected geological monument. It was declared a national nature reserve in 1895, making it the first such site in the Czech Republic.
The rock is a popular hiking and rock climbing destination. There are several hiking trails that lead to the top of the rock, where you can enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
