A trip to Rožnov p R. – „The Heart of t
On this trip we are going to visit the town of Rožnov pod Radhoštěm, especially the Wallachian open-air museum. This all-day trip is suitable for all admirers of timbered architecture which can be seen in this museum.
Formerly a wooden little town, quaint and so typical, with the scent of old pine trees, of which it was built, spreads out on the banks of the Bečva river. At the beginning of 20th century people valued the special climate of this picturesque valley at the foot of the famous Radhošť mountain as an important spa region. During the past decades Rožnov pod Radhoštěm has grown into an important tourist, cultural and industrial centre.
The town, surrounded by sunlit meadows, blue mountains and sloping hills with the scent of blackberries and junipers has maintained its pleasing appeal.
