A natural monument “Oblík”

A natural monument “Orlík” is located on the green touristic mark towards Pitárné. Shortly behind Divčí Hrad you turn right to field road. After about 400 meters you get to  a gentle elevation  and this is the Oblík. The elevation refers to the age, when Osoblažsko region was covered by the secondary sea or in the late Quaternary about 250 meters wide glacier. A natural geological formation is made of so called carbonaceous calcite - in which you can find fossils of sea animals - crinoids, corals, squids and brachiopods of Cretaceous age, when Osoblažsko region was covered by the sea. The pressure of the continental glacier denuded this rock. Nowadays, it is a very interesting geological locality.
