A world of natural beauty

12. 12. 2011 | Welcome

The most impressive landscapes in the region are to be found in the Beskydy mountains, whose peaks and valleys are shrouded in myths and legends. 

The Beskydy protected natural area is a refuge for many rare plant and animal species, including some unique natural habitats. The best-known is the Mionší primeval forest, which offers visitors an unforgettable experience of nature almost untouched by mankind. But the region also holds other natural treasures – including some wonderful mountain meadows, dense forests, parkland, water meadows, and many other places of interest. The landscape of Těšín Silesia is truly a meeting of two worlds. Next to the beautiful Těšín Beskydy mountains are the gently rolling lowlands of Karviná, a landscape of quiet natural beauty including a wealth of lakes, ponds and rivers. This varied landscape is an ideal place for nature-lovers: come and marvel at the stunning romantic beauty of the Beskydy mountains, the backdrop to many a local legend, enjoy the soothing burbling of a cool mountain stream, or just bask in the tranquility of the region’s calm lakes and ponds with their wonderful flora and fauna.
