A bit of history
According to historical sources, the volcano last spoke 80,000 years ago. Now the volcano sleeps peacefully, as guests in our rooms. The surroundings of Komorní hůrka volcano are shrouded in many legends. For example, the legend of cursed souls. How else could people in earlier times explain rising poisonous gases and vapors? Today, however, we can declare with a clear conscience: Komorní hůrka is not haunted.
Back in time ...
Did you know that J. W. Goethe also visited Komorní Hůrka? At the same time, two groups of scientists: "Neptunists" and "Plutonists" were engaged in a fierce scientific dispute. The Neptunists interpreted the formation of rocks by settling from water and saw the cause of volcanic activity in the burning of underground coal seams. Plutonists were based on the theory of the Earth's hot core.
