FRÝDEK

MÍSTEK

Frýdek and Místek. Located in two different historical lands, but with a common destiny. For centuries, two separate cities, which are still in the middle of the twentieth century (not so old really, grandmothers still remember) merged into one. Such a twin-city that is attractive for trips. Visitors will find it doubly interesting - two historic cores, with two picturesque squares – and will experience a slightly different atmosphere in Silesian Frýdek, and a different one again across the Ostravice river, in Moravian Místek. Two predecessors of today’s FrýdekMístek had a similar history. Here could be heard, among the din and bustle of booming industry, the tinkle of money as merchants travelled along the old trade route, and winds blew through the rugged highland region, whose people were industrious and pious. And so today, visitors can admire a wide range of beautiful stone and wooden churches, an exhibition of townhouses, and technical monuments in the region. The mountainous region surrounding Frýdek-Místek invites expeditions for far-reaching views, offers biking, horse riding, swimming, and lots of wonderful gastronomic experiences in local restaurants... There truly is something for everyone.


Something for everyone

Just answer these basic questions: who are you, what are your preferences, and this guide will recommend what not to miss in Frýdek-Místek! And don’t forget to look at the website too: www.beskydy.com.

A few years ago, you would have flipped straight to the sections“Tourists” or “Sportspeople”. But since your additions to the family (or additions?), challenging hikes and bike rides, wild rides down the river, and camping in the wilderness are no longer possible. The programme must be adapted according to what childrens legs can manage, trip destinations are limited to places that you can get to pushing a stroller... But we have good news. Our region offers plenty of great places for families with children. And we guarantee that it will even entertain mums and dads!

2. Tourists

You are a classic Czech tourist, walking in the mountains and natural attractions (by which we mean: not a tourist in the modern concept who can handle two European capitals a day, and also takes more photographs of things than he actually looks at)? Then in Frýdek-Místek you have come to the right place! Here you can see a lot of interesting things. You can even go for a big hike in the Beskydy mountains, the Lysa mountain... We will be glad if we can inspire you to also visit some attractions in the immediate vicinity of the city.

Who am I?

3. Cyclists

The region also has much to offer lovers of the most widely used two-wheeled, human-powered vehicle. And those who are not afraid of small, and even large elevations will be rewarded with magnificent views of the mountains. Besides, cyclists can ride according to their tastes, with no ties, enjoying everything that is described in other sections.

4. Sportspeople

Whether you like team sports, individual sports, or both, we are happy to give you a few tips on what to do in Frýdek-Místek and the surroundings.

Theatres, museums, and galleries are your world. Not only the body, but also the soul needs feeding. Otherwise it atrophies and shrinks, like the body, when starved. We can recommend where to go in Frýdek-Místek for culture. page

7. those interested 58 in the history and architecture of the town

When you visit a new city or a new country, it would be a sin not to visit all the local sights and attractions! Well, Frýdek-Místek is after all two cities in one. Here it will be interesting! You can enjoy a number of nice churches, a Jewish cemetery, a square with historic houses... So take your guidebook in hand and onwards to the sights!

8. Admirers of folk architecture

Maybe your friends consider you a little strange. Maybe your nearest and dearest don’t even know IT about you because you have learned to keep your little oddity artfully hidden. But IT is something deep inside you... sometimes IT must come out! Yes, just like the folk paintings on wood and glass, thatched roofs... The entire open-air museum with wooden page cottages and churches! You are lovers of folk architecture, and we will advise you how to satisfy your passion in Frýdek-Místek.

LOOK OUT POINT

PANORAMA

The lookout is below the top of Kabátice mountain, and is also known among tourists and locals as Kabátice. It looks a bit like a parked flying saucer. It rotates above Chlebovice, near Frýdek-Místek, at an altitude of 460 metres above sea level. It has two galleries, one of which is nearly eighteen metres high. Don’t worry, it’s not even a hundred steps to the top, even when it is only a few short of that number. From the top is a beautiful view of the town, Olešná dam, and the surrounding mountains. The lookout is not old. The foundation stone was laid in 2000, thanks to the membersof the Cultural Association of the Bezruč region.

The lookout tower measures 22.1 metres!

HUKVALDY CASTLE

On a hill, high above the birthplace of the composer Leoš Janáček, lies one of our most extensive ruins: Hukvaldy castle. It was built in the 13th century by Count Hückeswagen. It was named Hukvaldy after his family. Yes, it was a little garbled. Apparently, the castle was never conquered, but fire achieved what enemies couldn’t. After a fire in 1762, the castle was never repaired, and was left to ruin. The best preserved building is the chapel of st. Andrew, which was restored in the 19th century.

Do you kids (and parents) know what an arboretum is? It’s a word that originated from the Latin word, arbor (tree) – i.e. a collection of live trees. And just such a botanical garden can be visited within Staříč, where you can learn some new things, or even buy a tree for your garden. In the miniarboretum you can admire over 1,500 kinds of trees, as well as ponds with lizards and frogs croaking. It is a wonderful piece of nature, thanks to a lot of work and human intervention.

(Holy Waters Chapel and Spring)

13 “SVATÁ VODA” IN HÁJEK

Pilgrims heading to the Marian church in Frýdek liked to stop in the Archduke’s forest at a place where a trickle of water erupted from the hillside, to ward off thirst. The water was good and refreshing – and some sick people supposedly recovered after drinking it. Everyone at least drank some, or scooped some into bottles for their loved ones at home (either suffering from some malady, or even just as a precaution).

13

Lískovec-Hájek GPS: 49°42‘41.648“N, 18°20‘46.487“E

People started believing in the healing powers of the spring! One woodsman stood a wooden cross by the spring, then gradually a chapel was added, a stone fountain with wrought-iron grilles, sculptures, a bell tower... This place, according to the former Archduke of the forest, is called “V hájku” (In the grove). Today, it is also wheelchair accessible. Tourist stamps are also issued here.

And also protection – the site of nearly 50 acres was in 1990 declared a natural monument. The trough is recessed to a depth of 7 meters into the river terraces, and water rolls through rapids over its thresholds.

It rises to a height of 350 meters above sea level, and has an ancient history. At the top, you can find the remains of an early medieval castle, but we have to really look - this is no ruin with walls and towers. People repeatedly settled and moved on from here in prehistoric times.

They found coins here also proving trade relations between the region and the ancient world.

ONDRÁŠOVY díry The cave system, Ondrášovy díry, is located between Lysa mountain and Malenovice. Here you can find extensive surface and underground pseudo formations. The total depth is 34.5 m, and the cave system has three levels. The caves have been explored, but are not accessible. There is the danger of cavefall, and people, by their very presence, could disturb the endangered bats there, so there is a locked gate at the entrance. Even so, this place is worth GPS: a visit.

Water and everything Connected Swimming, Canoeing

For water lovers, the region has mainly the Ostravice River flowing through this beautiful environment. You can sail down from Šance dam, either in the spring, or during the release of water. But it is white water (up to the third degree), so be careful – it is only for the experienced, with the appropriate equipment and vessels (raft, kayak). This is particularly true of the cascades and rapids.

Dams Swimming in the open air, you can enjoy natural reservoirs at Baška, Žermanice, and other bodies of water. In the water reservoirs of the Morávka and Šance, recreational activities are prohibited because of sanitary protection, because they serve as sources of drinking water. But a walk around them can certainly do no harm.

Canoeists sometimes end up in the water unintentio nally, but on the contrary, others go looking for places to swim. A great place to swim is the Olešn á dam, where fishermen are also in their element. By the dam is a large aquapark. It has a summer part an d a covered part, so swimming is possible all year round. There are lots of attractions there, for example, nearly a hundred me tre raging river, and an almost as long water slide, various saunas... We also write about Olešná in the section “Parents with children ” (p 6).

Winter Sports

Ski area and Trails Many of the trails are perfect for summer tourist hikes, and after snowfall it becomes a challenge for cross-country skiers too. Within easy reach are also ski resorts with many beautiful slopes – Palkovice, Malenovice, Gruň, Bílá, Visalaje, Pustevny, Bumbálka, Mezivodí, Sviňorky, Zlatník… The most demanding can seek out experienced instructors, and begin alpine skiing in Beskydy, i.e moving around in free, mountainous terrain. With cross-country skiing, of course, you can go where your eyes lead you. But in the mountains, with a good track, then it is a different sport! You can find out which sections were last modified from the website: beskydska-magistrala.msregion.cz

In Beskydy you can go snowshoeing, ice skating, or ice wall climbing on Bílá!

The latest information can be found on:

beskydska-magistrala.msregion.cz

Cross Country Ski Trails Travný cross-country ski trail Over 14 kilometres of machine groomed trails, all of which offer beautiful views. The starting point is the car park of the Morávka-Lípová, or in the Morávka-Sviňorky centre, at the lower lift station.

In ideal snow conditions, the trail around Olešná dam is also maintained.

Lysá mountain cross-country ski magistrale Over the top of Lýsá mountain is the highest altitude cross-country ski trail in Beskydy. Thanks to the altitude, the snow on it is long lasting. The starting point could be Papežov, or Albinovo náměstí, south of Malenovic.

For Golf lovers

You can play the noble sport of golf on several courses in the region.

Prosper Golf Resort

Čeladná

Čeladná has made a name for itself among golfers. The high class golf resort, which includes two championship eighteen-hole courses, is among the toughest in the country. We find water hazards from subtle streams to the beautiful island hole with a waterfall, hills, narrow sections surrounded by forest... The resort will accommodate you, and feed you in the stylish restaurant, but there is also a riding school, where mainly western riding takes place. Golfers can enjoy spectacular views of the mountains during their game.

PERSONALITY

Vladimír Vašek alias Petr Bezruč, a distinctive character of our poetry, and the “Silesian bard”, has left many a footprint in the region. Leaving aside speculation about whether he was the real author of the Silesian Songs of the postal clerk Vašek, or someone else. Petr Bezruč wrote about this region, and his legal name does not matter so much. In Na Staré poště (the Old Post Office) in Místek is a plaque commemorating that Vladimír Vašek worked here. Not far from the source of the “Holy Waters” in Hájek, are magnificent views of Beskydy. The place is called Bezručova vyhlídka (Bezruč Look out Point – of which we write on p. 14).

50 Frýdek CA STLE Frýdek castle was originally a gothic castle, which guarded the traffic on the merchant trail from robbers. At the end of the 16th century, for their greater convenience, the lords of Bruntál from Vrbna rebuilt it into a Renaissance castle. The present form was acquired in the 18th century by the lords of Pražma from Bílkov. It was they who had the most problems with the famous outlaw of Beskydy, Ondráš. The castle has its own ghost too, and has had for more than 300 years. Since his death in 1651, Earl Jiří from Oppersdorf has supposedly haunted here. In the park are small cylindrical buildings that used to function as “castle refrigerators.” They weren’t called refrigerators at the time, but rather “ice-houses”. In winter, they stored ice, carved from the frozen river, and that helped keep the raw materials for the castle kitchen fresh.

Church of the St. JOHN 55 THE BA PTIST The oldest church in Frýdek dates from the first half of the 14th century. In 1604, they began to build a new tower. Such structures could then take a very long time: the builders finished in 1650. Upstairs, a lookout was placed to watch for fires in the town. Unfortunately, a flaming catastrophe struck with full force. In 1688, the town and the castle burned, along with the church and its tower, from which the bell fell, and had been melted by the heat. The people repaired the church, then it burned down again, and was again repaired. That is why the oldest church in Frýdek does not look old.

The smallest local church is an example of late Renaissance architecture. The wooden belfry was added to it in later times. Around the church are Baroque statues, sculptures, and along with the crucified Christ are st. Barbora and st. Florián, who we have already seen in metal form on Zámecké náměstí. Around the church was a cemetery that served Frýdek’s suburbs and the old town. But more than a century ago it was decommissioned because it was not big enough. During the repair of the church in the 90s, treasure was discovered – a clay jug with coins, mostly from the 17th century.

The Ostrava–Frýdlant railway line was opened in 1871. Everything was preceded by wrangling over whether the track would lead along the left or right bank of the river Ostravice (and therefore, whether the station would be in Frýdek or in Místek). Who won, you can see for yourself, by the placement of the historic station building. It was probably so that the people of Místek weren’t regretful that the station was eventually named Frýdek-Místek. And this was long before the combination of towns could have even been imagined by the residents.

The townspeople with the right to brew beer got together in the honourable village taprooms. Prior to 1580, there were in about four dozen houses with the right to brew beer at home. Later came a larger brewery, but that has moved several times, and nearly one hundred years has passed.

All Saints Church in Sedlišteˇ

The high-quality single nave timbered building in Sedliště dates from the first half of the 17th century. It grew up in the place where a small church stood in the Middle Ages. It has a shingled roof. Outside, around the main aisle, leading to an indoor walkway, is the so-called “sobota” (damp course), protecting the foundations of the church from inclement weather. The wooden church can theoretically be taken apart and rebuilt like a model kit. This is where the 19th century reached out in practice, though the originally freestanding tower was dismantled and “joined” the church, so it now towers over the main entrance. They no longer bury people in the cemetery by the church. You can see iron crosses from several decommissioned cemetaries in Frýdek-Místek.

According to an old legend, the Earl at this place shot a large deer, but before its death, it “pinned” the hunter to a rotting tree trunk. After three days of being trapped between the antlers, he was found by his entourage.

The church of st. Michael the Archangel in Řepiště near Paskov is a single nave church with a thatched roof. It has gone through a lot over the years. A record from 1808 has been preserved, stating that is was in a ramshackle condition. It belonged at various times to different parishes, and even to different churches (it briefly served the Lutherans). They rebuilt it. Also, in earlier times, it was named differently, and it was dedicated to st. Nicholas. It used to have a “sobota” (damp course), like the church in Sedliště, but it lost it.
