Welcome to the Microregion Moravice

This beautiful and hospitable area has its unique character. The backbone of the microregion is formed by the Moravice river with its numbers meanders located in a deep rocky valley. In 1994, the Natural Park Moravice was officially established – the largest and most valuable protected area in the Opava region. The whole area of the microregion Moravice is a popular tourist destination. There are the ruins of the Vikštejn castle standing on the steep rock hill near Podhradí.

This microregion has also a rich mining tradition with interesting sites for keen geologists. The romantic landscape is complemented by old heaps of extracted roofing slate, abandoned mines, and lakes hidden in the shade of trees. The old miners' towns of Budišov nad Budišovkou and Vítkov are also a starting point for a walk around the Kružberk dam.

In this picturesque region spent her childhood Joy Adamson, a granddaughter of a local entrepreneur named Weisshuhn. In her books, Adamson recalled this happy period throughout her entire life. Similarly, the poet Petr Bezruč drew inspiration from the local landscape while staying in Branka u Opavy, when he mentioned Hradec nad Moravicí, Žimrovice, Melč, Radkov, Klokočov, Čermná ve Slezsku, and Branka u Opavy in his Silesian Songs. In every season, you will certainly find here plenty of little things that will forever linger in your memory.
