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

The first stage of hiking

Wisla (PL) - Jablunkov

Basic information about the trail

Thanks to its beautiful nature and interesting monuments, Wisla is an ideal place for wandering along the Cyril and Methodius Trail. From here we travel towards the Czech-Polish border to Malý Stožek from where there are nice views of the Polish mountains. From Malý Stožek, we descend gently along a forest path to Jablunkov, the easternmost town in the Czech Republic, located at the confluence of the Olše and Lomná rivers. The densely populated area is home to Czechs, Poles and Slovaks, which is reflected, for example, in the summer folklore festival Gorolski Święto, a celebration of the Czech-Slovak-Polish tri-border.
