Cyril and Methodius Route – Cultural Route of the Council of Europe

The fifth stage of hiking

Mezivodí - Pustevny

Basic information about the trail

The trail starts in two ski resorts and tourist interesting places of the Beskydy Protected Landscape Area. We will pass by the partisan memorial on Martiňák through beech forests, spruce forests and nice views. The panorama shows the valley with the houses on Kněhyně and Prostřední Bečva, the peaks such as Soláň, Tanečnice, Vsacký Cáb, Vizovice and Hostýnské vrchy. An interesting fact is that Pustevny is located on the border between the Moravian-Silesian Region and the Zlín Region and two municipalities of Trojanovice and Prostřední Bečva.
