Černá hora (i.e. Black Mountain, German: Schwarzenberg) is a 1,315-metre-high (4,314 ft) mountain in the Bohemian Forest, near the border with Bavaria, Germany. Its summit is not much higher than the surrounding area and it is entirely covered in dense spruce forest. Nearby is the source of the longest Czech river, the Vltava.
