About the Wallachia region

Photo"The Wallachia region belongs to the poorest but also most beautiful regions of our country. It stands out for its so many beauties of nature and peculiarity of its traditional character that nobody can ever forget about it...." says the introduction to the book The Wallachia District diligently prepared and published in 1938 by local enlightened teachers. Nothing has changed on their words over the 60 years. Wallachia still does not belong to rich regions but the hilly countryside, charming nature scenery with picturesque wooden houses will prepare nice experience for you. The more this is true if you like hiking and test the Wallachian hills literally by your own feet.

If tired after a long hike you can get down to towns Vsetín, Rožnov or Valašské Meziříčí. Each of them will offer you something different. For example a bit of Wallachian history in castles and museums or Wallachian architecture in the famous Rožnov open-air museum, works of art you can admire (and buy) in many galleries. Or would you better taste something from the local cousin? After a delicious Wallachian specialty you will have enough time to refresh your mind as well.
