About the Moravian-Silesian Region
The Moravian-Silesian Region borders on the Zlín and Olomouc Regions, Poland and Slovakia and it is a region full of contrasts and opportunities. The mixture of beautiful countryside, sport facilities, relaxation centres, and many cultural, architectural, sacral and technical monuments forms the picturesque and extraordinary territory of the Moravian-Silesian Region.
The region is divided into six attractive tourist regions, each has its specific and invaluable character. The Beskydy Mountains may offer, in addition to their beautiful nature, numerous monuments of folk architecture. Poodří Region is enriched by many chateaus and ruins of castles. The Ostrava Region has its specific and extraordinary character given by the tradition of the deep mining of black coal. It is reflected in many technical monuments having aspirations, thanks to their uniqueness, to be listed as UNESCO monuments. Although the Opavské Slezsko Region is a narrow band of territory, it offers a wide range of monuments. The most attractive ones include chateaus, historical towns and preserved military forts. The Jeseníky Mountains are a favorite destination for tourists not only due to their natural treasures, but also due to the oldest narrow-gauge rail line with a steam train in Central Europe. The Těšín-Silesian Region is a picturesque territory at the border with Poland, where flat meadows change to rolling hills and mountain ridges of the Beskydy Mountains and the Jablůnkovské mezihoří.
Virtual Tours intend to introduce the offer of the most attractive sights in the Moravian-Silesian Region which make this region unique and different from the other tourist regions in the Czech Republic.
