Eastern Exposure

Like Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia offer a range of geography to explore ranging from the well cultivated wine country of South Moravia to the cave complexes of the Moravian karst and the mountain ranges in Moravian-Silesia which make up the border regions with Poland and northern Slovakia.

The Northern Corner

Silesia is an area which straddles the Polish and Czech border, the bulk of the region is in Poland. Moravian-Silesia is an area of sharp contrasts as it contains both beautiful protected green space such as the Moravici river valley as well as the city of Ostrava and its surrounding areas which were heavily industrialized under Socialism and still bear the scars today.
