The Moravian-Silesian country is on the border with Slovakia and Poland. It is an industrial region, often called the steel heart of the country, where heavy industry dominates to this day. The capital of the country is Ostrava with many technical monuments.
The region has a varied landscape with Jeseníky mountain ranges and their highest peak, Pradziadem and the Beskids located at the border with Poland. These are sparsely populated areas, perfectly suited to active tourism. It is favored by a dense network of hiking trails, as well as for cross-country skiing.
The capital of Ostrava is mainly associated with industry. Currently, part of the former Dolini Vitkovice combine has been changed into a science and entertainment center. Thanks to this, the declining district has gained a new life.
The cities of the Moravian-Silesian region are small, but many have preserved nice markets and old buildings. You can see it, among others in Frýdek-Místek, Frenstat pod Radhostem or Opawie. In Karvin you can see a church with a leaning tower, somewhat called exaggerated Czech Pisa.
