CZ: Halfway between Jeseník and Heaven– Branná and Relax Center Kolštejn

Published: 19.3.2020
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.

This is where we came across the foothills of Hrubý Jeseník, only 20 km from the town of Jeseník.

Goldenstein – Kolštejn – Branná

The village Branná, which we mean, has a long and interesting history. It was founded around 1282 as Goldenstein. The first one was probably a castle here, which was built in the Middle Ages to defend the Golden Path. Later, its part was rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau.

The name of the village Kolštejn is a Czechized garb of the original name. It held until the end of World War II, now the village bears the name Branná after the local river. Since 1992, the historical center of the village is an urban conservation area.

However, the name Kolštejn has not disappeared, so it is called Relax Center, which provides tourists with comfortable facilities. Let's get back to him.

Branná City Protected Landscape Area

The monument zone is adorned with a Renaissance reeve building and a beautiful dominant building of the originally evangelical church of Archangel Michael. In the niche of the outer wall there is a baroque statue of St. John of Nepomuk and nearby there is also a sculpture Pieta, dating back to 1663! The church is connected by the above-ground corridor with the parish building.

A few steps away is a square with a charming Renaissance town hall. There is a fountain under the aged trees for almost 200 years and one of the houses in a row behind it is the mentioned Relax Center Kolštejn and Wellness Hotel Kolštejn *** superior. Right on the square, in the original reeve building from 1325, there is Hotel garni Kolstejn ***, restaurant Kolstejn and microbrewery Kolstejn.

Where to on a Trip?

Deep forests, photogenic mountains and sparse settlements are the cornerstones of the local promised landscape. A dense network of marked paths, ski areas, cycle paths and a lookout tower are here for anyone looking for active relaxation. The Pasák nature trail runs right through the center of the village, which leads to the Jeseníky ridges to the rocks of the same name. The 250 m long and 30 m high rock is strangely geomorphologically shaped and has always attracted attention. There is a legend about a shepherd who did not watch his herd, and the origin of the name of the rock. Remarkable nature also has its rare inhabitants. There are corncrakes (Crexcrex), rowan, quail (Coturnixcoturnix), red-backed shrike (Lanius collurio), and the plant kingdom has precious stones here: Platantherabifolia, Listeraovatum (Listeraovata) and Lilia.

podzim v Branné

Lovers of military history in the area admire the well-preserved line of pre-war border fortifications. Two kilometers from Branná is a series of cannabis and infantry log cabins, some of which have been renovated by the Military History Club and occasionally accessible.

There are thoughtfully trained cycling terrains, although in the hills there are usually cycle paths along the contour line. You will ride through a beautiful forest environment with views of the Jeseníky Mountains and Králický Sněžník. Those who like to relax can borrow an electric bike, scooters are available for non-traditional experiences. In winter, you just change your bike for cross-country skiing.

Those who have enough energy in the evening, there is a two-lane bowling and two billiard tables.


Relax Center of Kolštejn

It's great that you don't have to go anywhere for the night. Right in the middle of this tourist paradise, there are two hotels which, in addition to accommodation services, also offer wellness - and that is exactly what your tired and tired body needs.

Throughout the year, in all weather, there is a swimming pool with salt water and counterflow. Salt water has a very beneficial effect on the skin and inhalation of saturated vapor salts relieves breathing difficulties. Therefore, the visit is recommended to allergy sufferers. You will feel right at the seaside.

Relaxing Massages

Massage is the most reliable help for the tired organism. Whether you are just tired of all-day sports or have a particular problem (sore back, migraines, “heavy feet”…), massages will help you relieve yourself. They improve blood circulation to the skin, muscles and joints and thus improve their overall condition. Fatigue and pain disappear as if by magic.

Some of the troubles will be helped by thermotherapy with classical massage, some by honey massage or hot stone massage. Peat and paraffin wraps are not only medical but also cosmetic procedure, cupping and beer baths as well. And we haven't mentioned chocolate wraps and clay masks yet!

It brews light and semi-dark lagers and beer specials according to the season. The beers are unpasteurized and unfiltered and you can also taste them during a guided tour of the microbrewery associated with tasting.

Here you don't het bored. Here you chill.
