North and South Moravia is a wealth of history and culture. The university town of Olomouc in North Moravia is the region’s highlight. It reveals what Prague would look like without the crowds. The wilderness of the Jeseniky Mountains remains relatively unexplored, while the village of Stramberk offers some of the country’s best examples of traditional wooden architecture. South Moravia has a potent identity and thriving folk culture. Summertime rings in a smorgasbord of joyous festivals, not to be missed if you are in town. Venture beyond the towns and you will find magnificent wilderness, the incredible caves of Moravian Karst and picture-perfect chateaux. South Moravia offers the best of both worlds– lively towns and tranquil nature.
