Wonderful as it may be to find yourself with a group in this beautiful place, you might nevertheless feel like seeing more of the Czech Republic. You can swim in the Morávka River (500m away) or explore the surrounding mountains and forests by bike or on foot. You can make excursions to the nearby Morávka Reservoir or visit the larger Žermanice Reservoir (20 km). Frydlant nad Ostravici (15 km) has a small airport where you can watch the gliders and planes take off and land. You can even take a sight-seeing flight here. Frýdek-Místek (18 km) is certainly worth a visit. This town was built on both banks of the Ostravice River and is an excellent place for a bit of shopping and entertainment. In the modern town of Kopřivnice (40 km) there is an automobile museum. A stone's throw away from there lies the fortified town of Štramberk (42 km). The fortress's tower can be seen from a distance. There are two museums and a cave, where a Neanderthal jaw-bone was found. The small, but cosy market place beckons you for a stroll but you can sit down and relax at one of the terraces. For a day trip Rožnov pod Radhoštěm (44 km) is highly recommended. On your way there, you can stop off in Frenštát pod Radhoštěm (32 km) with its old attractive town centre. Rožnov is a tourist town whose open-air museum is its main attraction. At three separate locations you can get a glimpse of how people used to live, work and entertain themselves in the past. For those who would like to hop over to Poland: Český Těšín lies only 29 km away. In the same town on the Polish side (Polský Těšín), there is a large market where everything can be bought at very moderate prices, especially clothes and household goods.
