The new photobook captures the Moravian and Silesian Region as an attractive and dynamic location

The 113 photographs showcase the most interesting places in the region, as well as people and events visitors can attend during the year. The book will be used to promote the region and be available from bookshops. Visitors to the Olympic Festival can view the photos displayed in the corridors of the Ostravar Arena until 25th February.

The new book was presented by its “godparents”, Deputy Governor Jarmila Uvírová, the region’s councillor Radmila Vlčková, the author of all 113 photographs Libor Sváček, Martin Hák from MCU publishing, and gold-winning ice hockey player from Nagano David Moravec, who provided the motto for the book: “Walk your own path and never give up.”

“This book could be a pleasant walk through our region. However, I believe that these excellent photos will motivate people to get to know the region actively instead of limiting themselves to passive flipping through the pages. The number of visitors to the Moravian and Silesian Region has grown again year-on-year by more than 10%. This is proof that we have much to offer and can attract people with events and various locations to visit,” said the region’s Governor Ivo Vondrák.

Radmila Sváčková assisted photographer Libor Sváček in processing the images for the book, and Radovan Lipus, Director and author of the television project “Šumná města” (Pretty Towns), wrote the introduction to the book.

“This publication shows that the Moravian and Silesian Region is not only about industrial and technological points of interest. This is a presumption that needs to be corrected. We also have beautiful mountains, plentiful historical sights, many interesting people, delicious food, and beautiful nature,” said Deputy Governor for the Environment Jarmila Uvírová, adding that the region is also preparing a pocket guide for publication. This will also be published in cooperation with MCU publishing in the second half of February.
