Introduction The joy of travelling always brings with it the need to plan and choose, because seldom do all the places you’d like to see fit in to a travel itinerary. This can be quite a confounding task when it comes to the Moravian-Silesian Region, as its list of attractions is long thanks to its bountiful history. For example, if you like the atmosphere of old noble residences, you can choose from amongst dozens of castles and chateaux  – from the ostentatious red and white chateaux in Hradec nad Moravicí to the rather mysterious castle Hulkvaldy or the uniquely fortified Sovinec. Just as wide of an offering is found in city and village architecture. Fantastic places await you like the monument reserve in Nový Jičín with townhouses around the square Masarykovo náměstí, Štramberk with its remarkable Tube and Heřmanovice featuring a  distinctive group of folk structures. Wooden structures of many types dot the entire region: in Havířov there’s the preserved and remarkable Kotul’s  Log Cabin, and some of the spa buildings in Karlova Studánka are also timbered. The loveliest examples of “wooden architecture” here are the myriad typical churches found primarily in the Beskydy Mountains and their foothills. The Ostrava area with its industrial heritage is also known for its important technical monuments, including the Michal Mine, the ODK Museum and the Lower Area of Vítkovice. When visiting Kopřivnice, make sure you tour the Tatra Museum. Enjoy an unforgettable ride along the Osoblaha narrow gauge railway. And don’t miss the military fortification complexes in Darkovičky and Milostovice, testimonies to the difficult times prior to WWII. You will see that the region’s tourism treasure chest is rich in themes and is nearly inexhaustible.
