Śląskie Kamienie or Dívčí kameny ("Silesian Rocks" or "Maiden Rocks"; German: Mädelsteine), 1,413 metres (4,636 ft) and Czeskie Kamienie or Mužské kameny ("Czech Rocks" or "Man Rocks" in Polish and Czech respectively), 1,416 metres (4,646 ft) is a twin peak and a rock formation situated in the western part of Karkonosze on Polish and Czech border within the Karkonosze National Park on the Polish–Czech Friendship Trail. The rocks are up to 8 m high.[1]

Location[edit]

The twin peak is located in the main ridge, between Śmielec and the Przełęcz Karkonoska. The border straddles the peak. A stone monument reminds the tragedy of the Czech journalist Rudolf Kalman, who died here during a snow storm on 14 January 1929.[2]
