Říp is a 459m solitary hill rising up from the central Bohemian flatland. Říp, being visible from great distance, has always been an important orientation point in the Bohemian scenery and has attracted attention since the oldest times. According to a traditional legend, first recorded by the ancient Czech chronicler Cosmas of Prague in the early 12th century, Říp was the place where the first Slavs, led by Forefather Čech, settled. The land was named after the leader. On top of the hill there is a Romanesque rotunda of Saint George, which is one of the oldest buildings in the Czech Republic. Near the rotunda is a tourist hut that was built in 1907 and still serves travellers today.
