Tip for a Trip: Moravská Třebová – the Hidden Renaissance Pearl

There are two kinds of people: those who prefer to spend their free time in busy cities and those who like to slow down a bit in more peaceful places.

There are many beautiful places in the Czech Republic, but one can’t simply visit them all. Unless visiting interesting places is your job – then you may have the time to do so. It’s a shame but I think I might have a solution to your problem.

By the way, this whole area is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Tip for a Trip: Moravian Karst

Unless you’re a passionate fan of spelunking, you might think that caves are boring. After all, they’re dark, wet, narrow, and probably full of bats – who are known carriers of dangerous diseases, among other things – and that’s pretty much about it, right? No? If you are one of those people who agree with that statement, then let me try to change your mind because there is one area in the Czech Republic known for its fascinating caves. It lies in the middle of beautiful forests that look like from brothers Grimm’s fairy tales. But don’t worry – there are no evil old witches lurking within!

In that case, you will surely appreciate the region called Moravian Slovakia.
