Corning Museum of Glass

Website

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Think You Know About Glass? Think Again! “Wow, I had no idea.” It’s as if that phrase echoes throughout the galleries of The Corning Museum of Glass. Visitors old and young alike seem stunned by what they discover soon after walking through the door. Whatever preconceived notions they were entertaining pale in comparison to the ethereal beauty that’s found in the Contemporary Art + Design Wing, just steps from the Admissions Lobby. Think about your interactions with glass every day. You drink your juice out of it in the morning. You look through it when you peer out a window. You cook with it when you make a casserole. But did you also realize you carry it around with you every day? I’m not talking about the eye glasses on your face that help to magnify the world around you—I mean the glass in your pocket that allows you access to a world of information literally at your fingertips. From the screens of smartphones to the display glass on computer and TV screens, and even the fiber optic technology that enables it all, glass is the transparent material that connects our lives. Who knew, right? Are you already thinking about glass a little differently? That’s our goal at The Corning Museum of Glass. We tell the story of a single, transformative material. You may arrive at the Museum thinking you’ll see a Pyrex display or learn about the history of the lightbulb, but—if we do our job right—you’ll leave having just seen glass in an entirely new light. Here’s a few fun facts that might surprise you about The Corning Museum of Glass: The average visit is nearly five hours! Come find out why. Admission is valid for two consecutive days and kids 17 and under are free. CMoG has 50,000 objects in its collection, spanning 35 centuries. From floor-to-ceiling contemporary displays to meticulously crafted works from Mesopotamia, you’ll be amazed by the many forms glass can take—and by what skilled craftsmen can do with a material comprised mainly of hot sand. The Amphitheater Hot Shop is the world’s largest space in which to watch a glassblowing demo—and they happen all day, every day. You might get lucky during your visit and catch guest artists from across the world making amazingly complex creations. You can make your own glass! Yes, that’s right—at The Studio, you can work with a material hotter than volcanic lava. Choose from blown glass ornaments, pulled flowers, flameworked beads, fused glass picture frames and more. There’s nothing quite as special as a handmade souvenir. (Projects available for all ages for an additional fee.) And that’s just the beginning. During your visit to The Corning Museum of Glass, I dare you not to utter the phrase, “I had no idea!” And when you do, share what surprised you: #IHadNoIdea. Visit CMoG.org to plan your visit!

Huntsville Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau

View Sponsor profile Visit Sponsor Website Before and during the Civil War, Huntsville was a center for railroad and river-based trade and commerce. The Tennessee River remains a favorite local spot for summertime fun. Even now, we boast one of the nation’s oldest existing railroad depots where Civil War-era graffiti still marks the walls from the Confederate soldiers who were held captive there. Unlike many Southern communities during the Civil War, Huntsville's buildings were mostly spared from destruction – leaving the Rocket City with one of the largest concentrations of antebellum homes in the South. The heart of this historic area is called Twickenham. Look at the structures across town and you’ll see a beautiful collection of antebellum homes, renovated manufacturing mills, iconic Greek Revival-style buildings, a perfectly preserved down-home hardware store – the oldest in the state – and even a few spaceships! Where else can you find that combination? In the middle of the 20th century, our bustling town became a critical support line for the U.S. Army before helping to launch the Space Race with the establishment of NASA and the Marshall Space Flight Center. Space exploration is celebrated across all of Huntsville – we are known as “Rocket City USA” after all – but it’s especially celebrated at Alabama’s most popular attraction, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Expanding further into science, technology and other industries is Cummings Research Park, the second largest in the nation. Established in 1962, this impressive consortium of more than 300 companies adds a bustling population of engineers, doctors, students and creatives. The history of Huntsville has seen numerous influxes of new faces from all over the world, which makes our history and identity an ever-changing tapestry. From humble beginnings, the “Rocket City” has grown into a future-minded place to live, work, play... and, of course, to visit! Twitter Twitter (2) Facebook Instagram Pinterest Youtube

In the Czech Republic you can enjoy everything Europe has to offer but without the Euro! 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the independent Czechoslovakia. Wait, Czechoslovakia doesn’t exist anymore, right? Here is a bit from the history: • With the collapse of the Habsburg monarchy at the end of World War I, the independent country of Czechoslovakia was formed. • The independence of Czechoslovakia was officially proclaimed in Prague on October 28, 1918. Czechoslovakia existed for 75 years, until 1993, when the country peacefully split into two independent countries: Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the context of this anniversary, we will tell stories of architecture and design (with focus on modernism and functionalism), stories of lifestyle (famous cafes, spas and the story of Czech beer), Czech brands (Czech glass, Czech cars and even Czech shoes and hats), and the formation of the Republic. The main storyline unfolds the period of prosperity of the country in the 1920s and 1930s, during the so-called “First Republic” era. The Czech Republic in a nutshell: • Ranked the 6th safest destination out of 163 countries in the world • 12 historical sites on the UNESCO Heritage List • 5 traditions in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List (Verbuňk Dance, Shrovetide, Falconry, Kings’ Ride, Czech Puppetry) • 6 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (nearly 6 % of total area) • Over 200 castles, chateaux and monuments • More than 40 protected historical towns • 33 spas • 104 golf courses • 4 national parks and 26 protected landscape areas (nearly 16 % of total area) • 12 mountain ranges higher than 3,000 feet • 25,000 miles of walking trails • 27,000 miles of cycling routes

Rochester is the third largest city in New York State, is located on the southern shore of Lake Ontario and is the “front door” to New York's breathtaking Finger Lakes region. Considered the cultural capital of Upstate New York, Rochester was recently named one of the most arts-vibrant cities in the country by the National Center for Arts Research. Affordable and accessible, Rochester is the perfect fit for foodies, families and fans of arts and culture alike. Thanks to its proximity to the Finger Lakes (one of the most agriculturally-rich regions in the country), Rochester is filled with culinary choices with plenty of farm-to-table experiences to discover.

The 100+ wineries in the Finger Lakes wine region are a short drive away, and Rochester itself is home to more than two dozen breweries, including the iconic Genesee Brewery – the oldest brewery in New York State.

Ostrava!!!

Ostrava!!!

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website TEN REASONS WHY OSTRAVA HISTORY Our ancestors played a central role in building European civilization! World-renowned figures such as the composer Leoš Janáček, the psychologist Sigmund Freud and the founder of genetics Gregor Mendel all left their mark on our culture and heritage. ARCHITECTURE Film-makers love Ostrava’s unique urban scenery, full of atmosphere and contrasts. Modern buildings, industrial locations, Soviet-style 1950s architecture, stunning red-brick buildings, imposing castles and romantic chateaux. The Region’s architecture has been shaped by world-renowned figures such as Hans-Georg Erhardt (Ropice Golf Resort) and Camillo Sitte (responsible for the entire central part of Ostrava’s Přívoz district). INDUSTRIAL Ostrava’s industrial revolution began in the 19th century when coal was discovered and Archbishop Rudolf established an ironworks in Vítkovice. The ironworks later came under the control of the Rothschilds, and these world-renowned financiers helped the company to flourish and grow into one of Central Europe’s leading industrial powerhouses. Today the blast furnaces stand empty, and the coal mines are no longer active – but Ostrava’s rich industrial heritage has been beautifully preserved in a plethora of historic buildings, which now offer ideal venues for your events. An amazing and unforgettable atmosphere is guaranteed! CULTURE Ostrava has a unique and vibrant cultural scene, renowned far beyond the borders of the Czech Republic. So why not plan your event to coincide with one of our many cultural festivals – all year around, there’s always something happening here. LIFESTYLE Ostrava is one of Central Europe’s greenest and most spacious cities. It is also renowned for its vibrant festivals, theatres, galleries, cafés, and the legendary entertainment quarter around Stodolní Street, with over 60 bars, pubs and clubs to suit all tastes. For weekend trips, the beautiful Beskydy and Jeseníky mountains are just a short hop away – an ideal leisure destination all year round. EDUCATION The Ostrava Region has four universities with almost 35 000 students specializing in a huge range of fields. Ostrava is renowned for its rich and vibrant student life. PEOPLE Here in Ostrava we’re known for being honest and direct – we always say what we think. And once you get to know us, we’ll be friends for life. MULTICULTURAL We host many festivals celebrating cultures from all around the world – Folklore Without Borders, Korean Days, Polish Days, French Autumn, and much more. We are multicultural to our core. EASY ACCESS Ostrava is so easy to get to. The city is just a few kilometers from Poland and Slovakia, and Ostrava’s international airport is the gateway to the entire world. RUMOUR HAS IT… People just love us. What do they say about our city? “It’s a perfect location for the technical museum, and it’s fascinating how a former gas-holder has been converted into a concert hall.” Daniel from Britain, visiting Lower Vítkovice “An amazing industrial atmosphere, a great music scene, and wonderful people. The festival was fantastic – I’m glad it’s so near to us.” Martyna from Poland, at Colours of Ostrava “When I visited Karlova Studánka it was such a surprise to see how beautifully the spa has preserved its historical character. The spa buildings are truly like stepping back in time, and the architecture perfectly captures the atmosphere of this wonderful area.” Jiří from Prague, after his trip to the Jeseníky Mountains “Perfect courses, a pleasure to play here.” Eric from the Netherlands, after playing golf in the Region “Be good, come to Ostrava.” Martin from Ireland, after a tour of the Region

Moravian-Silesian Region

Moravian-Silesian Region

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Moravian-Silesian region is a colourful area full of contrasts where on one hand you can find unspoiled green mountain areas and amazing industrial sights on the other one. Nowhere else besides Ostrava will you find so many architectural styles and whole suburbs influenced by the industrial revolution. Ostrava reflects the beauty and richness of the First Republic (the period of 1918 – 1938 of independent Czechoslovakia) and boasts a city hall which includes the tallest look-out tower in the country. Old mines and steel-mills now attract visitors to the city. Venture over to the Jeseníky mountains to inhale the cleanest air in Central Europe. The majestic peak of Praděd (4,893 ft / 1,491 m) is the highest mountain in Moravia and Silesia, surrounded by unspoiled nature, dormant volcanoes and pure air. Visit the White Pearl of Silesia, the town of Opava, and its many architectural gems. The Silesian area around Opava is associated with stories of famous personalities. The genius Beethoven lived here and the Russian Tsar, Alexander I, deliberated, along with the crowned heads of other European countries. Few travel destinations offer such a comprehensive mosaic of interesting and attractive places as Moravské Kravařsko. History literally flowed through the gently rolling landscape along the Odra River between Fulnek on the north and Nový Jičín on the south. This was the birthplace of the founder of genetics, Gregor Johann Mendel, where the Hussites settled, and where the Teacher of the Nation, John Amos Comenius, journeyed through the towns and villages. For those of you looking for a place where the words “tradition” and “custom” aren’t empty advertisement clichés, we offer traditional folklore in the Těšín area. The customs of three neighbouring countries come together here. Wander around the Beskydy Mountains, where the unspoiled nature is combined with the traditional roots of the indigenous people. This area unfolds below Lysá hora, the queen of the Beskydy Mountain peaks, where the views will take your breath away. The beauty of Štramberk, with its narrow alleyways that wind among traditional wooden houses, reflects the fact that this ancient village is nick-named the Moravian Bethlehem. Live it and tell!

Dingle Distillery

Dingle Distillery

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website The Dingle Whiskey Distillery came into being in the cold winter of 2012. Ireland was beginning to come out of the greatest recession in many people’s memory. However unbeknownst to many, the most significant event in the Irish whiskey industry in decades was happening in a tin shed in the town of Dingle, Co. Kerry. Witnessed by few, the first Dingle Whiskey Casks were filled on the 18th December 2012. Three years and a day later on the 19th December 2015, one cask, Cask No. 2 was released. Our whiskey was born. Our distillery was ready. We have always had quality over quantity at the forefront of our thoughts. We never had any interest in distilling enormous quantities of bland whiskey. We understand and respect the concept, it just wasn’t for us! We aren’t passionate about bland spirt. We are hugely passionate about flavoursome, well-crafted spirit. To achieve the flavours we want to achieve in our whiskey, we use three distinctive, hand-crafted copper pot stills to create what we believe is the ultimate Irish whiskey. Their distinctive design, incorporating a boil ball, encourages reflux and has much to do with the remarkable smoothness and purity of our spirit. We use a small, swan neck pot still to achieve our desired effect on our award-winning Gin and Vodka. Once again, we appear to be at the forefront of a minor revolution in that the Dingle Whiskey Distillery is the first of what appears to be – and we certainly hope will be – artisan distilleries throughout the island of Ireland. The future of the Irish Whiskey industry looks bright and we are proud to have been the first to break the mould. Long may it continue!

The Tennessee River remains a favorite local spot for summertime fun. Even now, we boast one of the nation’s oldest existing railroad depots where Civil War-era graffiti still marks the walls from the Confederate soldiers who were held captive there. Unlike many Southern communities during the Civil War, Huntsville's buildings were mostly spared from destruction – leaving the Rocket City with one of the largest concentrations of antebellum homes in the South. The heart of this historic area is called Twickenham. Look at the structures across town and you’ll see a beautiful collection of antebellum homes, renovated manufacturing mills, iconic Greek Revival-style buildings, a perfectly preserved down-home hardware store – the oldest in the state – and even a few spaceships! Where else can you find that combination? In the middle of the 20th century, our bustling town became a critical support line for the U.S. Army before helping to launch the Space Race with the establishment of NASA and the Marshall Space Flight Center. Space exploration is celebrated across all of Huntsville – we are known as “Rocket City USA” after all – but it’s especially celebrated at Alabama’s most popular attraction, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Expanding further into science, technology and other industries is Cummings Research Park, the second largest in the nation. Established in 1962, this impressive consortium of more than 300 companies adds a bustling population of engineers, doctors, students and creatives. The history of Huntsville has seen numerous influxes of new faces from all over the world, which makes our history and identity an ever-changing tapestry.

Dingle Distillery

Dingle Distillery

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website The Dingle Whiskey Distillery came into being in the cold winter of 2012. Ireland was beginning to come out of the greatest recession in many people’s memory. However unbeknownst to many, the most significant event in the Irish whiskey industry in decades was happening in a tin shed in the town of Dingle, Co. Kerry. Witnessed by few, the first Dingle Whiskey Casks were filled on the 18th December 2012. Three years and a day later on the 19th December 2015, one cask, Cask No. 2 was released. Our whiskey was born. Our distillery was ready. We have always had quality over quantity at the forefront of our thoughts. We never had any interest in distilling enormous quantities of bland whiskey. We understand and respect the concept, it just wasn’t for us! We aren’t passionate about bland spirt. We are hugely passionate about flavoursome, well-crafted spirit. To achieve the flavours we want to achieve in our whiskey, we use three distinctive, hand-crafted copper pot stills to create what we believe is the ultimate Irish whiskey. Their distinctive design, incorporating a boil ball, encourages reflux and has much to do with the remarkable smoothness and purity of our spirit. We use a small, swan neck pot still to achieve our desired effect on our award-winning Gin and Vodka. Once again, we appear to be at the forefront of a minor revolution in that the Dingle Whiskey Distillery is the first of what appears to be – and we certainly hope will be – artisan distilleries throughout the island of Ireland. The future of the Irish Whiskey industry looks bright and we are proud to have been the first to break the mould. Long may it continue!

This quaint agri-artisan community enjoys incredible views that rise over 7,000 feet from the lakeshore. The tranquility, spectacular setting, and lush resources have inspired and sustained generations of family businesses, shops, restaurants and wineries. Chelan is the only incorporated community in the Northern part of Chelan County and is located along the Southeast end of Lake Chelan. The city’s year round population is approximately 4,000; however, these numbers can swell to 25,000 during summer months due to Chelan’s popularity among tourists and part-time residents. A trip to the head of Lake Chelan is a journey into an unspoiled frontier, forgotten by time. No roads lead to Stehekin, so the only way to arrive is by charter or personal boat, seaplane or small personal aircraft, or on a Lady of the Lake passenger ferry. Hiking on foot or horseback is another option for getting to Stehekin.

The country boasts 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites and world-renowned Spa towns. Apart from producing some of the best beers in the world, the Czech Republic also harvests great wine varietals in Moravia. In the Czech Republic you can enjoy everything Europe has to offer but without the Euro! 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the independent Czechoslovakia. Wait, Czechoslovakia doesn’t exist anymore, right? Here is a bit from the history: • With the collapse of the Habsburg monarchy at the end of World War I, the independent country of Czechoslovakia was formed. • The independence of Czechoslovakia was officially proclaimed in Prague on October 28, 1918. Czechoslovakia existed for 75 years, until 1993, when the country peacefully split into two independent countries: Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the context of this anniversary, we will tell stories of architecture and design (with focus on modernism and functionalism), stories of lifestyle (famous cafes, spas and the story of Czech beer), Czech brands (Czech glass, Czech cars and even Czech shoes and hats), and the formation of the Republic. The main storyline unfolds the period of prosperity of the country in the 1920s and 1930s, during the so-called “First Republic” era. The Czech Republic in a nutshell: • Ranked the 6th safest destination out of 163 countries in the world • 12 historical sites on the UNESCO Heritage List • 5 traditions in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List (Verbuňk Dance, Shrovetide, Falconry, Kings’ Ride, Czech Puppetry) • 6 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (nearly 6 % of total area) • Over 200 castles, chateaux and monuments • More than 40 protected historical towns • 33 spas • 104 golf courses • 4 national parks and 26 protected landscape areas (nearly 16 % of total area) • 12 mountain ranges higher than 3,000 feet • 25,000 miles of walking trails • 27,000 miles of cycling routes

Sullivan Catskills

Sullivan Catskills

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website From the beginning, they came for our fresh air, water, cool summer breezes, snowy winter slopes and year-round spectacular scenery. Since the 19th-century visitors have flocked to our Sullivan Catskills. Hundreds of hotels and resorts grew forming a legendary reputation for hospitality and launching the careers of major entertainers – Mel Brooks, Woody Allen, and Joan Rivers to name a few. The Beaverkill and Willowemoc – and the Delaware river drew anglers from all over the world. In 1969, half a million visitors came to Bethel for three days of peace, love, and music at the Woodstock Music and Art Festival. THE TRADITION CONTINUES… Our natural environment is still pure and easily accessible. The resorts now include a family oriented hotel and golf center, a destination spa, and a major casino-entertainment complex coming next spring. Smaller B&B’s, cottages, and boutique lodging are attracting singles, couples and families to a relaxed recreation and restoration experience. The Woodstock nation brings their families home to a world-class entertainment and education center at the preserved concert site. Eagles soar over the fall palette of leaves on the Delaware Scenic Byway – voted best in the Northeast by USA Today. Our farms provide local fare to our restaurants and wineries, microbrews and distilleries are raising everyone’s spirits. And, every April the trout become cooperative on opening day. Whether you want to kick back or kick it up – relaxation sophisticated or simple – you’ll find fun, fresh air, and friends in our Sullivan Catskills.

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website About The Moorings Our story began in 1969 when Navy veteran and sailing enthusiast Charlie Cary decided to turn his passion into a new business. Starting with just six Pearson yachts, The Moorings offered travelers a unique way to explore the islands and experience the thrill of sailing. The Carys worked tirelessly to make this new concept successful. Living out of a small hotel right next to their marina in Road Town, the couple cared for each customer like family and, in turn, earned their longstanding loyalty. Soon enough, The Moorings started to grow. Charlie and Ginny expanded their fleet, offering larger yachts and Crewed charters while hiring staff from the local community to help carry the company into the future. www.moorings.com About Sunsail Maximizing vacations, minimizing footprints We love the destinations we sail in, and the people and animals who live there.

Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau

Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website The Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) is dedicated to creating economic impact through tourism. The effects of our "invisible industry" benefit everyone living in Dane County in key areas including jobs, community services and quality of life. The latest economic impact data released by the Wisconsin Department of Tourism indicates the strength of the tourism industry—particularly in Dane County, where we experienced a 7% increase in tourism dollars spent compared to the prior year. This exceptional growth reflects the strategic and focused efforts the GMCVB devotes to our local economy. What We Do • Attract new conventions, sporting events and competitions to the community • Provide expert service and support to existing and repeat events • Share comprehensive and easy-to-access information with visitors • Conduct and analyze tourism research • Build our local economy! Why It Matters • Tourism may be an invisible industry, but in 2017, visitors contributed $2.1 billion dollars in total business spending, which supported more than 21,915 full-time equivalent jobs in Dane County. That's 11% of tourism-related jobs in the entire state! • In the absence of the state and local taxes generated by tourism, each Dane County household would need to pay $730 to maintain the current level of government services. • Tourism is often the first impression of our community for potential business investors and innovators who may become residents that, in turn, expand our intellectual capacity and growth. Our efforts help make an impactful impression of the greater Madison area.

Ostrava!!!

Ostrava!!!

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website TEN REASONS WHY OSTRAVA HISTORY Our ancestors played a central role in building European civilization! World-renowned figures such as the composer Leoš Janáček, the psychologist Sigmund Freud and the founder of genetics Gregor Mendel all left their mark on our culture and heritage. ARCHITECTURE Film-makers love Ostrava’s unique urban scenery, full of atmosphere and contrasts. Modern buildings, industrial locations, Soviet-style 1950s architecture, stunning red-brick buildings, imposing castles and romantic chateaux. The Region’s architecture has been shaped by world-renowned figures such as Hans-Georg Erhardt (Ropice Golf Resort) and Camillo Sitte (responsible for the entire central part of Ostrava’s Přívoz district). INDUSTRIAL Ostrava’s industrial revolution began in the 19th century when coal was discovered and Archbishop Rudolf established an ironworks in Vítkovice. The ironworks later came under the control of the Rothschilds, and these world-renowned financiers helped the company to flourish and grow into one of Central Europe’s leading industrial powerhouses. Today the blast furnaces stand empty, and the coal mines are no longer active – but Ostrava’s rich industrial heritage has been beautifully preserved in a plethora of historic buildings, which now offer ideal venues for your events. An amazing and unforgettable atmosphere is guaranteed! CULTURE Ostrava has a unique and vibrant cultural scene, renowned far beyond the borders of the Czech Republic. So why not plan your event to coincide with one of our many cultural festivals – all year around, there’s always something happening here. LIFESTYLE Ostrava is one of Central Europe’s greenest and most spacious cities. It is also renowned for its vibrant festivals, theatres, galleries, cafés, and the legendary entertainment quarter around Stodolní Street, with over 60 bars, pubs and clubs to suit all tastes. For weekend trips, the beautiful Beskydy and Jeseníky mountains are just a short hop away – an ideal leisure destination all year round. EDUCATION The Ostrava Region has four universities with almost 35 000 students specializing in a huge range of fields. Ostrava is renowned for its rich and vibrant student life. PEOPLE Here in Ostrava we’re known for being honest and direct – we always say what we think. And once you get to know us, we’ll be friends for life. MULTICULTURAL We host many festivals celebrating cultures from all around the world – Folklore Without Borders, Korean Days, Polish Days, French Autumn, and much more. We are multicultural to our core. EASY ACCESS Ostrava is so easy to get to. The city is just a few kilometers from Poland and Slovakia, and Ostrava’s international airport is the gateway to the entire world. RUMOUR HAS IT… People just love us. What do they say about our city? “It’s a perfect location for the technical museum, and it’s fascinating how a former gas-holder has been converted into a concert hall.” Daniel from Britain, visiting Lower Vítkovice “An amazing industrial atmosphere, a great music scene, and wonderful people. The festival was fantastic – I’m glad it’s so near to us.” Martyna from Poland, at Colours of Ostrava “When I visited Karlova Studánka it was such a surprise to see how beautifully the spa has preserved its historical character. The spa buildings are truly like stepping back in time, and the architecture perfectly captures the atmosphere of this wonderful area.” Jiří from Prague, after his trip to the Jeseníky Mountains “Perfect courses, a pleasure to play here.” Eric from the Netherlands, after playing golf in the Region “Be good, come to Ostrava.” Martin from Ireland, after a tour of the Region

Moravian-Silesian Region

Moravian-Silesian Region

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Moravian-Silesian region is a colourful area full of contrasts where on one hand you can find unspoiled green mountain areas and amazing industrial sights on the other one. Nowhere else besides Ostrava will you find so many architectural styles and whole suburbs influenced by the industrial revolution. Ostrava reflects the beauty and richness of the First Republic (the period of 1918 – 1938 of independent Czechoslovakia) and boasts a city hall which includes the tallest look-out tower in the country. Old mines and steel-mills now attract visitors to the city. Venture over to the Jeseníky mountains to inhale the cleanest air in Central Europe. The majestic peak of Praděd (4,893 ft / 1,491 m) is the highest mountain in Moravia and Silesia, surrounded by unspoiled nature, dormant volcanoes and pure air. Visit the White Pearl of Silesia, the town of Opava, and its many architectural gems. The Silesian area around Opava is associated with stories of famous personalities. The genius Beethoven lived here and the Russian Tsar, Alexander I, deliberated, along with the crowned heads of other European countries. Few travel destinations offer such a comprehensive mosaic of interesting and attractive places as Moravské Kravařsko. History literally flowed through the gently rolling landscape along the Odra River between Fulnek on the north and Nový Jičín on the south. This was the birthplace of the founder of genetics, Gregor Johann Mendel, where the Hussites settled, and where the Teacher of the Nation, John Amos Comenius, journeyed through the towns and villages. For those of you looking for a place where the words “tradition” and “custom” aren’t empty advertisement clichés, we offer traditional folklore in the Těšín area. The customs of three neighbouring countries come together here. Wander around the Beskydy Mountains, where the unspoiled nature is combined with the traditional roots of the indigenous people. This area unfolds below Lysá hora, the queen of the Beskydy Mountain peaks, where the views will take your breath away. The beauty of Štramberk, with its narrow alleyways that wind among traditional wooden houses, reflects the fact that this ancient village is nick-named the Moravian Bethlehem. Live it and tell!
