Říp Mountain - mythical place and symbol of the Czech nation
Generally Mountain Říp is linked with the legendary arrival of Forefather Czech, a mythical figure, who gave the Czech land its name. It has been passed on that he brought the first Slavs to the territory of current Bohemia and climbed Říp, a hill of a rather unusual shape rising up in the middle of flat countryside, and he decided this was where his tribe and all its descendants would live. The first written record of the legend was made by the chronicler Kosmas:
„ … and there, the landscape lay far and wide where he could not see, all the way to the blue mountains, flat and free …. And it was a great joy for Forefather Czech to see the blessed land, and it made him think of what future of his kin and the next generation will be like here …“.
