I am very fortunate to be living in a highly photogenic area of the Czech Republic. It is called Bohemian Paradise (Bohemia is the historical name of one of the regions in the Czech Republic). The dominant feature of the Bohemian Paradise landscape is its sandstone rock formations. But since these rock formations are often hidden in woods, the symbol of Bohemian Paradise is an extinct volcano, which rises above the horizon and can be seen from far away. It is called Trosky. This remnant of an old volcano is rather remarkable as it consists of two towers. On top of them, a medieval castle was built in the 14th century. Today, only the ruins of the once beautiful castle are visible.
