Beskydy

The Moravian-Silesian Beskydy Mountains are situated in the eastern part of the Czech Republic in northern Moravia. The area shares borders with Poland to the north and with the Slovak Republic to the east. The Beskydy Mountains are part of a frontier mountain range that runs from north to south, with the highest points over 1000 m above sea level. Its landscape of long, rolling hillsides is covered with forests and pastures. The terrain is ideal for hiking, cross-country skiing and mountain biking.The area around the Beskydy Mountains is also rich with historic buildings. These include religious buildings including churches, synagogues and other places of worship, all made from the wood and stone of the surrounding area. The oldest of them was constructed in the first half of the 10th century, the latest built in the 1930's.
