On the outskirts of the town of Jeseník you can visit another of the unique places of our beautiful country. In 1822 Vincenz Priessnitz founded the world's first hydrotherapy institute. To this day, there is a popular spa, surrounded by beautiful mountain nature.
At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has affected not only our health but also our economy, including travel, it is difficult to plan a holiday or relax for the following year. Not everyone dares to travel to the sea or to exotics. But don't despair, because the Czechia and neighboring Slovakia offer a lot of experiences and relaxation surrounded by nature.
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.
More and more sunny days, but also the ongoing security measures regarding the situation with Covid-19, which prevents us from traveling abroad, result in an increasing interest in trips in the beautiful Czech countryside. However, this also causes an extreme increase in the number of people in the most famous tourist places and roads. So where to go and avoid the crowd? Come with us to the Jeseníky Mountains. On the 60-kilometer route, you can relax from the city parks, enjoy the fresh air without a curtain and you will meet a larger concentration of tourists practically only in the vicinity of Králický Sněžník.
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.
Let's go together for a 5 km long trail from Karlova Studánka upstream of the Bílá Opava through a unique nature reserve. The river cuts into a deep canyon and forms countless cascades, rapids and waterfalls.
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.
Endless hiking trails in unspoiled nature, meditation tranquility, cozy little village with interesting building monuments and in the center of everything a hotel with amazing wellness, where they will take care of their guests great. Isn't this the sky of a tourist? We are convinced.
