About this spot
Hidden in the woods, chapel and hermitages carved right into the rock.
According to legend, the knight Jaroslav of Svojkov and the daughter of the brewer from Velenice died here willingly. The knight's parents did not approve of their love, so they decided to leave this world together.
The Modlivý Důl (Prayer Valley) is a deep valley covered with forest. It is situated in a beautiful forest behind a rock massif in Svojkov pod Slavíčkem. The sides of the canyon are bordered with steep sandstone rocks.
