My super holiday in Moravia-Silesia!

The western borders of the Moravia-Silesia Region are formed by the Hrubý Jeseník mountain range with its highest mountain Praděd (1492 m). The southwest part is lined by the untouched Nízké Jeseník region and the rather unknown Oderské Hills. On the east and northeast part, the Moravia-Silesia Region is divided from Slovakia and Poland by the Silesian Beskyds with the borderland mountain Velká Čantoryje (995 m), the picturesque Moravia-Silesia Beskyds and the focal point Lysa Mountain (1323 m), and legendary Radhošt (1129 m). The Silesian lowlands with the Ostrava basin lie between the mountains spanning to the Moravian gate, which is not only the connecting point for Moravia and Silesia, but from a European perspective it is also the connector for the Baltic and Mediterranean.

Apart from the mountains, we have to mention some of the rivers here as well – at least those that have something in common. They begin with the letter O: Odra, Opava, Ostravice, Olše… The character of the landscape is by and large determined by three basic characteristic elements: almost untouched nature of all of the local mountains, the specific folk architecture, culture and folklore of the Beskyds Region and the industrial technical building structures of the industrial Ostrava Region.
