Description

Below the Veľká Homoľa Hill, only a short distance from Zoch´s cottage, there is the charming rocky kingdom - the so-called Tisové sklay (Yew Rocks). It is a natural monument, which certainly attracts the attention of many tourists. In addition to many rock formations, you can admire the beautiful nature and enjoy the undisturbed silence.

The rocks are interesting mainly due to their segmentation. They consist of three separate parts of the rock ridge and create a very charming and photogenic places. These quartzite rocks, formed during the Tertiary folding, represent an important example of the genesis of the Small Carpathians. The name of the rocks was derived from the yew tree, which once grew here, but today it is very difficult to find here.

Yew Rocks are easily accessible. We recommend their visit to everyone. They are located directly on the blue tourist trail leading from Zoch´s cottage through Zámčisko to Harmónia.
