Drábovna


A smaller group of sandstone rocks upon the right bank of Jizera close to Malá skála. The summit plateau is divided into several parts. There are plenty of caves and hangs there in which were discovered traces of primeval settlements from the Stone Age. There are also remains of medieval fortified settlement on four stone blocks. The small fort guarded probably an old commercial passage through Jizera valley. Some legend says the Dráb ( bad man, robber) which was living there kidnapped a young woman from the near Záborčí hamlet. But that woman killed the Dráb with an executioner from Turnov assistance and then she escaped. In the south-western direction from Drábovna is found the Vazovec valley with unique pseudo-carst crack called Bartošova pec (Bartošs cave).
