Rašovické rocks


The tertiary rocks of the northern edge of the neovolcanic complex of the Doupovske Mountains are represented here by basalt rocks and pyroclastics. High steep rock walls falling to the northwest of the valley were formed by the separation area of an old landslide. Rock outcrops are divided into several blocks of rock as a result of weathering.

The rock walls and plateaus are home to many thermophilic plant communities. More than 300 species of tall plants are recorded here, most of which are under a special conservation order. This includes the following highly threatened species: Ranunculaceae (Pulsatilla pratensis subsp. bohemica), cheddar pink (dianthus gratianopolitanus) and endangered species of basket of gold (Aurinia saxatilis), box-leaved milkwort (Polygaloides chamaebuxus), burning bush (Dictamnus albus). In shaded places with a deeper layer of soil grows the Lesser Butterfly Orchid (Platanthera bifolia), Narrow Leaved Helleborine (Cephalanthera longifolia), Martagon Lily (Lilium martagon), the highly endangered Early Purple Orchid (Orchis mascula) and especially the rich population of Snowdrop Anemone (Anemone sylvestris).
The specially protected Common Raven (Corvus Corax) nests here, and the locality is also an important biotope of invertebrate fauna, whose systematic research has not yet been carried out.

Forestry: In the nearby natural landmarks are forest covers of different age with the rich representation of coniferous as well as broadleaved trees – Scots pine, Norway spruce, European larch, English oak, Copper beech, Sycamore maple and European ash
