Roznov pod Radhostem Things to Do


    We bought our admission ticket and were about to head across the road when the ticket seller said it is best to look at the Museum first, so this is what we did. There is a lift incase you have walking difficulties. I am so glad we didn't miss the Museum as it was very well done, with lots of amazing exhibits!~It showed the Wallachian area from...


    File klátových hives These would be the nicest Bee Hives I have ever seen! When I first saw them, there was no way I thought they were Bee Hives.They looked like wooden tree trunks, many with decorations of human heads. I believe the Bees enter and exit through the mouth.I loved these!


    THE MAYOR'S HOUSEThe Mayor's House is from Velké Karlovice. It was used by the Mayor, the official Magistrate and Manorial Lords. A look around the ground floor was a chance to see how the wealthy Wallachian farmer families lived. Inside the entrance hall was a stool for combing wool, and a wicker cabinet, "Komarnik" for storing smoked meat. Next,...


    PUB AT THE LAST GROSIThis is another tenanted building which is used as a Restaurant. We came here for something to eat, but found we were too late, so had to settle for a coffee. Inside is set out very nicely with a platform for musical entertainers.We sat outside underneath the verandah, a very pleasant spot with a view over the village. The Menu...


    U INN VASKUVThis Burger log house is actually rented out and serves as an Inn.The Inn was built in the first half of the 17th century and lays claim to being the oldest building in the village, as well as one of the oldest timbered buildings in Moravia.So, if your feeling thirsty after all the walking you have done, then come here for a glass of...


    ROZNOVSKA HALLThis old building from 1770, is another that was transferred from Rožnov Square. It happens to be the first building installed in the village.I was able to enter the building at ground floor level. This led me into an old time Grocery store. Some old bits and pieces were on display, and some new times for tourists to buy.The second...


    BILL TOWNHOUSEMmm, this doesn't look anything like a modern Townhouse! This historical building is very old, having been built in 1750 in Rožnov town square. In 1924, it was brought here to be part of the open air village. As you can see in the photo, the building stands on columns. I read it was built during the Baroque period yet also has some...


    ST. ANNE'S CHURCH from VìtøkoviceThe church is a good example of the typical rural wooden church of the Wallachian region. I loved everything about it! Outside, the dark timber and the style was attractive. Inside was more than I expected! A stunning patterned blue wooden coffered ceiling is painted according to the plans of the original plans....


    THE CEMETERY - SURROUNDING ST. ANNE'S CHURCHI love wandering around old cemeteries around the world and at home, so finding one here was quite exciting! A chance to see some very old headstones. Yes, you guessed it, most of them were made out of wood. The cemetery surrounds the Church and is home to high standing Wallachian people. A hearse shed...


    The Wooden Townlet is where we decided to go first. It was across the road from the indoor Museum. In this little town, it was a chance to view Moravian municipal architecture of the late 19th and early 20th century. All types of original houses and buildings have been brought to the park and re-assembled, then painstakingly fitted with interior...


    This is what we came to see at Rožnov pod Radhoštìm.In 1909, the two Jaronek brothers settled in Rožnov pod Radhostem. They thought about building an open air museum and in 1911, a museum society was formed.The Museum took quite a while to put together because of interruption through wars, yet this didn't discourage them! By 1950, forty structures...

  • Wallachian open air museum

    It's required to go to Wallachian open air museum visiting Roznov :) Big & Great. I was in early September 2011, so the weather was perfect. Museum is special, because it's open air. All the space and area just takes a time to enjoy. It consists of three parts: the Wooden Townlet, the WallachianVillage and the WaterMillValley.You can taste the...

  • Velky Javornik - Hiking

    From Roznov Paseky you can make nice trip to the Velky Javornik (918 m). Very popular is going there by bike. When the weather is nice, you have amazing view to many other mountains near, including Lysa Hora, the highest mountain in Beskydy. On the top there is restaurant, opened whole year except Mondays.

  • Windmill in Wallachian village

    What you'll see beside houses in museum are the other uses and buildings - one such is windmill used to grind grains into flour. Here it's scientific copy from Kladniky village, tall wooden construction with original grinding mechanism inside. A mill man can thoroughly explain the processes involved - in Czech language.Wind power and strong man's...

  • You can get close to farm animals too

    ... when you explore of Wallachian village of the museum you will eventually come to the group of farm houses with live (and lively) animals. What wonderful moments these were - the goats were feeding on the grasses, the donkey was around in the pasture, sometimes screaming loud as he wants to tell you something, there were also ducks in muddy...

    We stopped at Eroplan for lunch when returning back from one photo shooting. Besides restaurant, it is also a hotel.
    Meals are tasty and the staff is really nice and polite.
    If you like luxurious surroundings, then it is the right place for you.
    For me it was... well, too much. There is nothing I can reprehend, but I felt quite strange there because, personally, I prefer more modest places. Even the prices are corresponding (I wasn't paying - but anyway...).

    Roznov has a few great pubs&bars, but my friend are the most excited by pub.no66. Like in all pubs its smoky place :] With perfect beer!
    Czechs have them own way how to drunk foreigners fast.. They get beer and green shots ! ah lovely green shots..
    Very sweet menthol ligueur is a green shot :] It's popular in CZ to get those. A few shots and north europeans are out i guess :) But they're not so strong without beer.
    Wallachians always suggest such beer as Radegast, but i love the most Kozel..

    Dress Code: Freestyle

    Super Green Shots! Czechs are very friendly people :)

    The bus network here is fairly good, reasonably cheap and well branched so you shouldn't have problem getting around on your own. You will be able to visit villages around in the hills and as well more toruist oriented areas such as Pustevny. Or provincional towns (Olomouc, Prerov, Brno, Ostrava - here you can get direct connections to Prague).

    For timetables on departures check the web site here:

    There are international buses to Slovakia - Zilina. From there you can catch bus or train to Bratislava, or indirect train to Poland (via Cadca - Cesky Tesin).

    Local train is excellent too - and nostalgic experience if they use those old ones.

    don't need old Skoda, take buses or trains

    Luggage and bags: I once came on first November and late October only to realize I need thicker winter clothes - it's mountain all around here and it snows early. It snowed then. Check weather report before you leave - if you come from southern parts.
    Same goes for your car - you must come with winter tyres or you'll be driving slalom and endanger yourself and other people in traffic.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Speaking of early November - good waterproof winter jacket, warm shoes... in general warm clothes to prevent your from freezing. Woolen stuff is natural insulation fiber to keep you warm (look the sheep here) and let your body breath.

    Photo Equipment: This is very scnic area, outdoor photographer will love mountains. So will wildlife photographer! Bring fast lenses and wide angle.
    Plenty of outdoor photography here.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you come in summer and you go for hiking you need proper boots and light clothes.
    If you camp outisde bring sleeping bag and tent, sometimes is chilly in summer so it must be warm enough to sustain as low as 10 degrees on the floor.

    Located on a mountain top just 9kms from Roznov pod Radhoštìm is the very attractive alpine resort in Pustevny, which is a Czech word for Hermit.
