Giant Mountains (German Riesengebirge, Polish Karkonosze) are the geomorphological total and the highest mountain range in the Czech and the Highlands. It lies in northeastern Bohemia (the western part lies in the Liberec region, the eastern part of Královéhradecký) and in the south of the Polish part of Silesia. The highest mountain in the Giant Mountains is Sněžka (1603 m). According to rumors, the Krkonoše Mountains guard the mythical Krakonos spirit. It is one of the most popular mountain areas in the Czech Republic.
The basis of geological composition consists of pre-peak crystalline slate and prehistoric metamorphic rocks (clamp). In the eastern part of the mountain range, limestones are rare. The ancient crystallinikum penetrates in some places and Krkonoše-Jizerský pluton (granite). The glaciers of the quaters were still glaciers that modeled the countryside. There were two types of glaciers. The first were valley-type glaciers and the second were Scandinavian type. Extensive plateau (Devil's hill, etc.) owes its glaciers to its origin. For a better idea, we can look at the icebergs in Scandinavia that illustrate how it is in Giant Mountains could look. The best example of glacial activity is, for example, the Elbe Mine or Giant Mine, which is a valley shaped by glaciers (troges). Other glacial relics are glacial kars (v Giant Mountains it is known for karyas as "pits"). Worth mentioning is the boiler pits and snow pits in Poland. Kary is one of the most precious things we can do Giant Mountains because they are the most rare of the Giant Mountains. Cryogenic activity v Giant Mountains it is necessary to mention, for example, the extensive rock sea (high hills) or frozen log cabins.
On the territory of the Giant Mountains there are relic and endemic species of plants and animals. In the Krkonoše Mountains, the largest areas are located above the upper limit of the forest in the Czech Republic. At the height of 1200-1300 m the forest belt ends here. Above is the area of the earthquake, the soldier, the stone and the scrub sea. This very rare biotope is called the arc-alpine tundra. In some places we even find peat bogs. The original spruce growth was partially devastated by the impact of air pollution. In the lower positions, beech and spruce monocultures grow. The Malacofauna of the Giant Mountains contains 90 species of molluscs.
