The Zlin Region located in the eastern part of the Czech Republic, the Zlín Region is a popular tourist destination. Its abundance of natural, cultural, and historical monuments makes it exceptionally attractive. Tourists come here to see the Archbishop Chateau of Kroměříž with its beautiful gardens, listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Wallachian Open Air Museum in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, the ever growing ZOO in Zlín – Lešná, experience boat trips on the Bata Canal, wine testing, local cuisine, or spa mineral springs.
No other Czech region offers such composition of mountains, spa resorts, wine growing valleys, abundant historical and contemporary architecture, and folklore, cultural and sports events throughout the entire year.
The District of Kroměříž
The tourist area of the district of Kroměříž stretches along the border between the Zlín Region and the Olomouc Region and makes a natural connection between Moravian Slovakia, the City of Zlín and its vicinity, Wallachia and the fertile flats of Haná. The town of bishops and archbishops, Kroměříž, is the ancient centre of this area. You will find ineffaceable traces of building activities of several generations of Roman Catholic leading dignitaries all around the place. No matter from which direction you approach the town, the roads and streets will always take you to some of its marvellous squares - Sněmovní, Masarykovo, Stojanovo, Hanácké or Riegrovo – from which you can easily approach the town’s most beautiful square, Velké náměstí. It is truly large, surrounded by splendidburghers’ houses with archways that are laced by dozens of small shops, cafes, galleries, comfortable restaurants and cosy pubs.
One of the Czech Republic's most distinct regions. Its unique character stems from its long and rich history, Remarkably strong and wonderful traditions and its folklore, which is as picturesque as the Moravian Slovakian folk costumes and songs that have the power to make you merry or bring tears to your eyes –(and, indeed, some are capable of both). This all goes hand in hand with great traditional cuisine which, together with local wine and slivovitz (plum brandy), creates a true "Torrent of Flavours and Pictures”.
The northernmost part of the Zlín Region, the marvellous Moravian Walachia, abounds in as much MAGIC OF DIVERSITY as other parts of the region. The imaginary border of the region is formed by the northern foothills of Hostýnské vrchy and continues south-east of Vsetín along Čertovy skály as far as the Slovaki border. In the north-east, it crosses the border of the Moravian-Silesian Region, which leads along the ridge of Moravskoslezské Beskydy. The hills of Radhošť, Pustevny and Čartak are ideal places where we can begin our virtual tour of Wallachia.
The District of Zlín and Luhačovice
Hostýnské vrchy, Vizovická vrchovina, the ridges of the White Carpathians and the course of the Morava River are the natural boundaries of the districts of Zlín and Luhačovické Zálesí, which are very attractive for tourism. This area boats a pleasant climate, plenty of historical buildings as well as modern architectonic complexes, spas and several unique natural sites. It is ideal for active holidays, relaxation and leisure activities, but it also offers plenty of cultural events.
