A few facts about Morávka

A picturesque village Morávka, squeezed in between Travný and Slavíč hills, is at the elevation of 520 m and stretches over both banks of the Morávka River. Its area of 8735.28 ha has made it a village of the largest cadastre in the Beskids. You cannot get to the village by train. The railway in its direction from Frýdek- Místek to Český Těšín ends at Dobrá village. The uniqueness of the local landscape invites for recreation throughout the whole year. For its precious nature phenomena and unspoiled nature, Morávka and its neighbourhood were included in the Beskydy Mountains Protected Landscape Area. It is appealing to any lovers of the healthy environment, hiking, fishing and game keeping. The occurrence of bears, wolves and lynxes has been recorded here recently. Hikers will welcome the hiking opportunities to Ropička Hill (918 m above the sea level) with a former Bezruč´s Hut from the year 1923 on its hilltop, the Travný Hill (1203 m above the sea level) and the Malý Travný Hill (1089 m above the sea level) where you can see the remains of a partisan bunker and a monument to partisans. The sculpture group “Night Crossing in Lipový”, the monument at a partisan bunker at Malý Travný Hill, the memorial at Slavíč and the jingle bells in Vlaský, Malý Lipový and Velký Lipový hills remind of the disturbed times during the World War II. A valley dam was built in Morávka village in the years 1960 – 1966. It serves as a resource of drinkable ware for the inhabitants of the nearby towns.
