Hidden places – Skryje

Skryje is a village in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. It lies upon the Berounka River, some 50 km (30 mi) to the west from the country capital Prague.

This little village became famous when French geologist Joachim Barrande discovered rich fossil deposits of Silurian fauna (namely trilobites) in the close surroundings of this village, when he was surveying the terrain for a horse-pulled railroad in 1840–1850. Today there’s a small museum in the Municipal Office building showing some of his finds.

Even thought the trilobites are interesting I found some there myself, I want to show you the photos of area that is called Skryjske Lakes. These are two small lake hidden in a forest and there is even a small natural waterfall.
