Untouched nature at Beskydy
Endless forests, lush meadows with flocks of sheep guarded over by a shepherd, gems of folk architecture, hillsides rich with
the smell of juniper and blueberries – this is
, North Moravian Wallachia, a region lying in the heart of the
mountain range
. The bearded Slavic god Radegast watches down from Radhošť, one of the peaks. The mountaintops,
Lysá Hora
or even
, offer fantastic views onto the landscape, and the place is a winter paradise for skiers.
The unique Valašsko building style is another attraction with its typical wooden structures.
To the beauty of folk architecture
The beautiful Beskids landscape is decorated with over
twenty wooden churches and historical structures built over
a span of five centuries. The diversity and preserved state of
these structures, scattered throughout the landscape, makes
them quite unique.
