The Moravian-Silesian Region, also known as North Moravia, includes the towns of Jeseníky, Opava Silesia, Moravian Kravařsko, Ostrava, Těšín Silesia, Beskydy – the former region of Wallachia. Here,
spread through the air are fairytale regions, architectural jewels, customs and traditions, technical rarities – all of these are found as vintage pieces that are forever timeless amongst the modern world we live in today.
Just as the Czechs have their Sněžka, the Moravians have their Praděd. At the beginning of the 20th century, Moravians built a lookout tower here, however, due to unsuitable building that could not support the bounds of the tower itself, the lookout tower deemed itself architecturally unstable, leading to the spontaneous and abrupt rupture in the foundation of the building. The lookout tower continued to fall apart until it was completely destroyed, so the planned reconstruction was not featured as it was unable to take place. https://severnimorava.travel/co-delat/priroda/htelevizníizni-vez-na-pradedu.
