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.

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.
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.
In the heart of the deep forests of the Hrubý Jeseník Mountains, visit the picturesque spa village with beautiful architecture and the surrounding nature and peaceful atmosphere. You will also find a waterfall, a geological exposition or a 600-meter long ski slope.
Today, we visit Olomouc a city in central part of Moravia which is known for its smelly cheese, landmarks, flower exhibition and rich history.
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.
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.
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.
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.
