The Panská skála (Lords rock) are basalt rocks near Kamenický Senov. The rocks resemble the Giant's causeway in Northern Ireland. The type of rock is quite rare and spectacular to view (and climb).

The regular penta- and hexagonal columns reach a height of 12 meters and a diameter of 20-40 cm. The formation originated in the tertiary when the lava flow solidified. Below the rock is a small lake. The rock's shape resembles an organ, which is the name given to the rock by common people - Kamenné varhany (The Stone Organ).
