Winter fairytale in the Czech Republic
Czech Republic | Why not try and experience a winter holiday in the Czech Republic. The ski regions of Jizera Mountains (Isergebirge), Beskidy Mountains and Kartonosze Mountains (Riesengebirge) all fulfil the requirements that one expects from a good winter day and eventful ski vacation. Especially families with small children will find these ski regions particularly ideal as the slopes are not overcrowded. Therefore the children will be able to easily find a secure place to ski and sledging. Popular ski regions include for example Harrachov and Spindlermühle (Špindlerův Mlýn) in the Kartonosze Mountains, Lipno Kramolin and Spicak in the Bohemian Forest or Novako Ski Center in the Ore Mountains.
If you are searching for a more challenging course then Harrachov will be to your liking. It is the heart of Czech ski sport and awaits with demanding slopes. Those who may be a bit more apprehensive can enjoy a lovely walk in the magical countryside. In the higher altitudes you will find perfect conditions with bright sunshine and chilly temperatures.
A conspicuous feature of holidays in the Czech Republic is that they are compared to other areas cheaper for things such as ski lessons and equipment as well as partying. This also applies to the rental prices for the majority of around 1,000 holiday houses and apartments that have an excellent price performance ratio. The holiday huts are basic but have all necessary amenities. Often they will also have a fireplace which provides the perfect conditions for a cosy evening after an eventful day.

The village is in both lowland Rožnovské furrow (lowest elevation is 390 m, is located on the flow of river Bečva southwest of the village) and in the eastern part Radhošťská highlands (the highest point is the peak Radhošt, 1129m). An area of 2006 hectares among the medium-sized municipalities of the district. A substantial part of the seat lies in a valley and river Bečva in the valley bottom Lower and Upper smeared. Dispersed settlement is also on the surrounding hills. Locally there are better preserved wooden buildings with traditional architecture, especially in the clearings.
Forests cover 68% of the area, it is the fourth most forested village of the district. Most of the forest consists of younger beech and spruce monocultures. Below on the slopes, eg. On a stone grow between meadows and pastures birch grove. Protectively most valuable are mixed with beech forests on the southern slopes Radhošt and partly Montenegro. Very valuable vegetation located on Radhošti the chapel. As for the rest of dwarf beech forests primeval character, formed harsher climates with a wonderfully developed age and spatial structure. Such forests are already very rare and vulnerable host communities of organisms. Similar growths are also smaller area along the red trail between Radhoštěm and Montenegro.

After the flood in 1997 occurred in several places to create zpřírodněných sections with huge gravel sediments and natural shorelines. If it is for the protection of buildings against water possible, it is highly desirable to similar sections of leave without modification, as it significantly improves the quality of river ecosystems in our country. The two most important rivers of Lower and Upper Soaked are typical piedmont gravel streams with a steep incline. Unfortunately, they are practically the entire length of the regulated.
