Vysočina - meeting place

The Vysočina region is located in the heart of the Czech Republic, on the border of Bohemia and Moravia. It covers a large area of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands, which gave it its name. It is a region of rowanberries, beautiful woods, fresh air and unforgettable sceneries. The marvellous landscape is perfectly matched by its cultural and historic riches, left here by many significant architects, sculptors and painters.

The concentration of monuments which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List is the highest in the whole country here – you can find here three monuments out of a total of twelve, on the map they create a triangle and the distance between them is approx. 40 km. Therefore, it is very easy to visit them all during your visit to the Vysočina region – not only does their geographical proximity invite you, but the variety and uniqueness of each of them as well. In the gorgeous historic centre of Telč you can see all the architectural styles of the last millennium, you will be surrounded by the romantic atmosphere of the local castle and the colours of the facades adorning the houses around the square. On Zelená Hora in Žďár nad Sázavou, you will feel the spirit of the ingenious architect Jan Blažej Santini-Aichel, who hid the symbolism of five stars in the local Pilgrimage Church of St. Jan Nepomucký. It gives you the possibility to immerse yourself in the magic world of legends and history. Třebíč offers a unique opportunity to visit a Jewish Quarter, which besides Jerusalem is the only Jewish monument listed individually in UNESCO. Apart from that, Třebíč monuments protected by UNESCO include the monumental Basilica of St. Prokop and the Třebíč castle with its museum expositions.

Nevertheless, the Vysočina region is, above all, a synonym for active relaxation, in particular outdoors. The typical landscape character and the clean air lure you to go on walks and trips – on bikes, cross-country skis, downhill skis or a horse. You can look forward to hundreds of kilometres of marked walking, cycle and riding tracks. The Vysočina region is also a regular venue for significant international biathlon and mountain bike races which attract tens of thousands of sport fans to the famous Vysočina Arena in Nové Město na Moravě.
