Winter sports; Among nature
There is enough lawn around the house for ball games. The garden contains outdoor furniture and a parasol. In the corner of the garden there is a fireplace surrounded by benches. Wood for the open fire pit is included in the price. Due to the fact that 45% of the area is covered by forests, the possibilities for hiking and cycling are almost unlimited. Hiking in the forests begins just 200m from the house. The landlord rents mountain bikes. In the entire area 5 cycling tracks have been marked out, ranging from 15 – 55 km in length and varying in difficulty. Bruntál (4km) is always included in the itinerary. The village of residence is included in two of the cycling routes. The main attraction is the large Slezská Harta reservoir lake (2km) which stretches out over 13 km in the Moravice valley, and another 3.5 km in the Black Brook Valley. At its widest point the lake is 1.7 km wide. This huge lake offers opportunities for all conceivable variations of aquatic sports: swimming, diving, boating, angling, surfing and sunbathing on the beach or in the grass. A fishing permit for foreigners costs approximately € 25 per week. Angling for carp, roach, pike, eel and salmon is possible. An inflatable boat and paddles can be rented from the landlord. Of course there's more to do in the vicinity. Beautiful castles very much worth visiting include: Bruntál castle, Raduň castle (42 km), Šternberk castle (41 km), Sovinec castle in Rýmařov (23 km) and Hradec nad Moravicí (41km). Opava with its 50000 inhabitants has a lively center and a botanical garden, arboretum and museum and is really worthwhile. Close to Písečná (54 km) lies Špičák cave and close to Lipová Lázně (50 km) there is the Na Pomezí cave. For the active holidaymakers there are tennis courts in Nová Pláň (14 km; 1 court), Bruntál (5 courts), Vrbno (27 km; 3 courts), and Mnichov at Vrbno (29 km; 3 courts). Horseback riding is possible in Bruntál, Nová Pláň, Svétlá Hora (14 km), Dolní Moravice (20 km), Stará Rudná (12 km) and Malá Morávka (19 km). Squash, bowling and skittles can be done in Bruntál. Indoor swimming pools can be found in Nová Pláň and Bruntál (swimming pool and pool for children), Vrbno (swimming pool and small pool). A worthwhile day trip is Nysa (69 km) or Otmuchow (81 km) in Poland. Nysa is a rather large town with plenty of monumental architecture and activity centers. Both towns have large lakes for aquatic sports.
