1. Schody hrůzy
The Jáchymov Stairs of Horror are occasionally referred to in the mass media as the wooden stairs that in the first half of the fifties of the 20th century connected the Jáchymov shaft Svornost and the camp of the same name built on the slope above the mine shaft. It consisted of 270 steep wooden stairs that the local prisoners had to overcome on their way to work and especially from work back to the camp. The stairs climbed a sharp climb in the range of 25–28°, i.e. they had about a 50% slope to the flat. Nothing of the original staircase has survived to the present day. Around the year 2000, however, a wooden replica was put into operation on the site of the original staircase, which is part of the Jáchymov Hell nature trail.
