Vysočany can be found near the western end of the Vranov dam, which makes it close for both swimming in the pleasant water and sightseeing in the nearby monuments, with beautiful nature all around. A point of interest for lovers of ancient history is mainly the Pallardi archaeological site of ancient fortification, which had been inhabited since the late Stone Age. There are also a number of former mills in the surrounding area, that give this landscape a touch of unique.


Zálesí is a calm and pleasant village with a name deriving from its location (English translation is Backwoods) – it is surrounded by forests from all sides. No matter which one you'll be coming from, you will certainly pass through the woods. This is the youngest municipality in the area (founded in late 18th century), one of its trademarks being a small restored belfry from 1948, a truly romantic site to stop by.


If you are looking for a quiet and romantic setting, yet close to Vranov nad Dyjí, monuments and swimming, come to Zblovice. And if you want to get to know not only the local countryside, but also the citizens, arrive in September for the traditional Feast celebration of schnapps, called Pačoky. In addition to degustation of the outstanding local Slivovitz (plum schnapps), also look forward to the parade of masks, comedy theatre skits and a traditional music band – all organized by the local people. Non-locals are gladly welcome!


Town of Šafov is set in a typical rural landscape, with five major breeding ponds surrounding it. Apart from them, there also interesting sites, one of them being a large Jewish cemetery with a unique and hard to forget atmosphere.

Podhradí nad Dyjí

Podhradí nad Dyjí hamlet has only a few dozen permanent residents, however, the vacationists one can hardly count. What is luring them here? May be the view of the mysterious ruin Fernštejn, which is like a magnet for all the adventure hungry individuals. Aside from that, the marvellous water recreation, of course.


This village is situated in the protection zone of the National park and pure nature is indeed never far away. As a tourist destination, you will certainly fall for Lesná, since you can find a number of fabulous places, definitely worth visiting here – such as a beautiful wind mill or the local motorcycle museum.


If you plan to come here by train, Šumná will most probably be your point of entry into the Vranov region. It is really worth the stop – mainly for those fond of walks and hiking, for Šumná is a virtual crossroad of many marked tracks in all directions.


You will sure like it in Uherčice. This village is typically Vranovian – with a pond in the centre and hospitable neighbours. There is also a hidden architectural gem – the vast Chateau Uherčice, currently not a part of mainstream tourism, but certainly worth the visit.


A nice, proper town, this is Vratěnín, where you can find many restored sites, together with simply lovely areas that invite you to relax. Not accidentally has Vratěnín received a prestigious Village of the year award, and its centre is protected as a village conservation area.


Bítov is a lovely village under the castle Bítov, a monument shrouded in myths and legends. It is also in close reach from the Vranov dam and the local well known camp, which is a generally popular place for a wonderful (family) holiday!
