Even if you are on holiday with a large group, you might want to see some more of the surrounding area and the Czech Republic. You can go for a swim in the Morávka River which is just 500m away or you can go cycling / hiking in the mountains and woods. You can take a trip to the nearby reservoir of Morávka or the larger reservoir of Žermanice (20 km). Frydlant nad Ostravici (15 km) has a little airfield where you can watch the planes take off and land. You can take a sightseeing flight here as well. Frýdek-Místek (18 km) is well worth a visit. It's a town built on the banks of the Ostravice River. It's a nice place for some shopping or having a night out. In Kopřivnice (40 km), a modern town, there is a car museum. A bit further away is the fortress of Štramberk whose tower you can see from a distance. It has two museums and a cave where the jawbone of a Neanderthal was found. The small but cozy square is inviting to walk around or sit down and relax at one of the terraces. For a day trip, Rožnov pod Radhoštěm (44 km) is highly recommended. You can stop off on the way and visit Frenštát pod Radhoštěm (32 km) with it's old city centre. Rožnov is a very touristy town whose biggest attraction is its open-air museum. Three different locations give you a glimpse of how people used to live, work and spend their free time in this area. For those who would like to cross the border into Poland: Český Těšín is only 29km further away. The Polish part of this town (Polský Těšín) has a large market where you can buy [mostly] clothes and housewares (very cheap!).
