The Jeseníky

Hrubý Jeseník 

The Jeseníky Mountains are divided into these geomorphological wholes: the Hrubý Jeseník region and the Nízký Jeseník region. The Hrubý Jeseník region (in Polish: Wysoki Jesionik, in German: Altvatergebirge) dominates the mountain ranges of Silesia and of the part of Northern Moravia with the highest peak Praděd (1491 m a.s.l.) atop which a watchtower and a 146.5m tall TV tower planned by architect Jan Liška are found. The tower has been in operation since 1980. The Jeseníky Mountains abound in natural beauties of highly diverse fauna and flora as well as of the wonderful mountain range. As a result an area of 740 km² with its center in the town Jeseník located in the Hrubý Jeseník region was proclaimed the Jeseníky protected landscape area in 1969.
