Holiday in Vranov is a holiday by the water. The Vranov dam is a popular tourist destination for all of those fond of swimming. No wonder it is called the Moravian Adriatic. He, who has seen the vast surface of the water, felt its refreshing touch in the dam with the sun warming his body, laid on the sandy beaches and experienced the never ending stream of summer beach pastime with everything that goes with it, will agree. The main beach can be found just by the reservoir dam. Smaller beaches await you in the coves, some of them small enough to be completely empty when you reach them.
