Květná Handmade glass
In a small village called Květná, beneath the great Javořina mountain (971m = 3230ft), the highest mountain in the White Carpathians, a glass factory was founded in 1794 by Alois Liechtenstein. Today, special old methods of glassmaking are used and glass is still made by hand. To watch a masterful concert of the glassmakers and their helpers is simply incredible. Many a hand must a simple glass go through before it gets to your home…
One of Bata's ideas was to link two rivers, the Morava and the Danube. The original idea was to transport coal. Its construction was thwarted by the Second World War and later by the communists, who forced Bata’s family to emigrate. After the Velvet Revolution, the idea was revived and now it is a place for tourists. Ports and bicycle paths have been built along the canal and today it is a popular tourist destination. The canal is about 50km long.

Formerly a city of black coal and steel, in the communist time it was better known for smog and unhealthy environment. But today it is a city full of greenery, design and museums created in the former mines, there is also a science and technology park in the old steelworks. It is a city full of youth, concerts and art. The utilization of the premises of the former steelworks Dolní Vítkovice is truly admirable. The current owner and patron has preserved the interesting buildings and structures and transformed them into modern functional area, yet he managed to retain the charm of this place. He also seeks to have this site included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site List.
Ostrava - Landek park
Once called the Anselm mine, it opened in the 18th century. After the Velvet Revolution, the mines began to be gradually closed down, so it was decided to use these spaces as museums so that future generations can see the mines and get an idea of what mining work involved. The mine, later renamed the Landek Mine, has been transformed into a tourist attraction, complete with a typical miner's pub. We can have a symbolic ride down to the pit, explore the different parts where miners worked and experience authentic conditions of their work.
