Straddling the border between South Bohemia and South Moravia, the Vysočina highlands are widely considered to be the most beautiful and unspoiled region of the Czech Republic.
Environmentally speaking, it is indeed the cleanest part of the country in air, soil and water quality. This does make it a popular and ideal area for all manner of outdoor activities year round. From camping, trekking and cycling in spring, summer and autumn to Nordic skiing in winter; you can do it all in Vysočina.
A trip through the region will offer you vistas of rolling hills, lush woodlands and steppe to name but a few.
When it comes to towns and sightseeing, the region offers several castles and chateaus as well as three UNESCO world heritage sites:
The Pilgrimage Church of St. John of Nepomuk in Žd’ár nad Sázavou
Main square with preserved Renaissance facades in Telč
Preserved Jewish Quarter and St.Procopius’ Basilica in Třebíč
