However, there are some activities to do in Kuncice as well. For instance, go to church of Prokop and Barbora, an 18th century structure completely made out of wood. The church was replaced here in 1931 from Hlinance u Cinadova village in the Ruthenia region.

So, where to go except from going up Skalka Hill? Try to hike up the green trail to Pustevny. There go by Radegast statue until you reach the peak of Radhost mountain.

You can also follow the blue trail and get to the crossroads at Horni Celadna chapel. Then take the red trail and go up to the top of Smrk. You can get back down to Ostravice. If you need to travel somewhere else, there is a train stop.
