Beautiful Dolní Morava

Beautiful Dolní Morava

Below Kralický Sněžník

The village straddled between Bohemia and Moravia at the boundary of the Orlické Mountains and Jeseníky, near the Polish border, is named after the Morava River that springs nearby. In winter, it is a popular place with winter sports enthusiasts; in summer, the countryside is a paradise to hikers, cyclists and mushroom-pickers. Every year, new attractions are created.
The historical border between Bohemia and Moravia, formed by the flow of the Morava River, passed through the village at the foothill of Králický Sněžník. Today, it is a part of East Bohemia, and the oldest landmark is the Empire-style Church of St Aloysius. Dolní Morava used to primarily be known by winter sports fans, but that no longer applies as the area offers attractions for year-round recreation. The most attractive place is the 55-metre-high Sky Walk with a unique view of the mountain range. You can find it near the top chairlift station, Sněžník, at an altitude of 1,116 metres.

In addition to the Sky Walk, Dolní Morava offers children’s areas such as Fun Park, Sand World, Mammoth’s Water Park, Forest Adventure Park, the fairy-tale Stamichman’s Trail, a children’s cycling ground, scooter, Segway and mountain bike rentals, cycling trails including single tracks, a bobsleigh track, rope climbing park and a disc golf park. The chairlift to Sněžník brings skiers in winter and hikers and cyclists in summer. In winter you can enjoy a snow park, sledding and cross track, snowmobile rides, and you can also try fat bikes and ski touring.

Trails to Sněžník and other peaks

A part of the village is situated inside the Králický Sněžník National Nature Preserve with rare plant and animal species. You can hike to the Morava River spring just below the mountain peak, or to the famous sculpture of a baby elephant, and there are many places offering beautiful views of the Jeseníky and Orlické Mountains. The Tvarožné díry caves above the Pod Vilemínkou crossroads, named after a karst phenomenon called moonmilk, or “tvaroh” in Czech, is an interesting destination, as are the pilgrimage site at Hedeč, the Hůrka artillery fort and the Military Museum in Králíky.
