Today we invite you for a walk around the world-famous spa, situated on the northwestern outskirts of Jeseník in the Olomouc region. The former settlement, called Gräfenberg until 1947, now called Lázně Jeseník, was founded by the so-called water doctor Vinzenz Priessnitz and has been popular with both domestic and foreign visitors since the 19th century.
Do you make trips to the Jeseniky Mountains? Be sure to stop in the national nature reserve of Rejviz near the town of Jesenik. There are unique peat bogs, wetlands and a settlement of the same name where you can buy some snack.
We left Republiky sqaure for St Wenceslas Cathedral situated on Wenceslas square. The cathedral houses Roman Catholic archdiocesis of Olomouc. The grandiose Romanesque/Gothic structure has some Baroque features and rich decoration of sculptures. It is true jaded gem of the city.
Upon seeing Dolni and Zerotinovo squares, we walked down several streets and found ourselves on Horni square again. Church of St Moritz is located near to it.
Last week we started with our tour around Olomouc. We briefly told you about its history. The point of start was Horni square. The Holy Trinity column, and the town hall with a tower belong to its main landmarks.
Today, we visit Olomouc a city in central part of Moravia which is known for its smelly cheese, landmarks, flower exhibition and rich history.
Place of pilgrimage have some sort of indescribable atmosphere and it lures thousands to visit this place. Not long ago we enjoyed the beauty of Svaty Hostyn. This place has magic. Perhaps this is the reason for our later decision to visit yet another important site of pilgrimage in the Czech Republic - Svaty Kopecek.
Historically, the second season starts this year, the baby of the ski resorts in the Czech Republic - Jeseníky Ski area Kouty. Operators on this year promise favourable prices. Compared to last year should also improve conditions for skiers and snowboarders.
