One-day coach trip to the "Lachian gate of the Beskids [ Trip ]
The Lachian gate of the Beskids - three towns and one municipality - Kopřivnice, Příbor, Štramberk and Hukvaldy. These places are especially suitable for those who are interested in the mysterious past, lovely nature, technical points of interest, sport, hiking, folklore and last, but not least, arts.
Come with us to visit the Wallachian town of Štramberk with its meandering streets and unique country architecture, the legendary Šipka cave with the remains of a prehistoric settlement which inspired the painter from Kopřivnice Zdeněk Burian to publish the world-famous books about Primaeval Ages, and whose pictures can be seen in the local museum. Let´s taste local speciality "Štramberk Ears" which is connected with a mysterious legend about the Tartars. Lovers of car history will be enthused by the Tatra Museum in Kopřivnice, the biggest pride of which is an exceptional car called "Präsident" - the first car during the Austro-Hungarian period and at the same time the first car in the Czech lands. We are going to visit the town of Příbor, the birthplace of Sigmund Freud - founder of psychoanalysis and the Hukvaldy municipality - the gate to the picturesque foothills of the Beskids, which is proud of the largest ruin of a gothic castle in our country and where we are going to finish our trip.
