Grab your passport and your most comfortable hiking shoes because the first Geyser of Awesome Field Trip of 2016 takes place on the Králický Sněžník mountain in the Czech Republic. That’s where we’ll find the Dolni Morava Sky Walk, a 180-foot-tall sinuous walkway made of wood and steel that’s built atop a cliff located 3,600 feet above sea level.
Designed by Fránek Architects, the sky walk was designed to blend into its natural surroundings. The walkway path is wide and has a gentle slop to accommodate wheelchairs and strollers. The view from the top is magnificent and the top level of the sky walk features a mesh net where visitors may lounge with their heads sometimes literally in the clouds.
But the awesome view isn’t the best part. Once you’ve made your way up and feasted your eyes on the beautiful Morava river and majestic Krkonoše Mountains, visitors have the option to descend by way of a 330 foot spiraling metal slide in the center of the sky walk.
