(Photos) Saxon and Bohemian National Park

These national parks are “two” (although they just really form part of one massive park but divided into two sides namely Saxony, Germany and Bohemia, Czech Republic) of the most spectacular places to go to in Central Europe. As one writer said pertaining to the Elbe Sandstone Mountains included in this zone, it is “a region of superlatives”.
