The vast and deep forests of Hrubý Jeseník in the northern part of Moravia are protected areas and extend into two regions - the Moravian-Silesian and the Olomouc regions. On the highest peak of Praděd stands a transmitter and lookout tower overlooking the surrounding mountains. You can set out here from Karlova Studánka through Bílá Opava valley or from Ovčárna. In the Jeseníky mountains there is clean and healing air for breathing difficulties and also springs, which has created several spas and convalescent homes.
