Explore the Moravian-Silesian Region - the best place for living, leisure and doing business!
The Moravian-Silesian Region is located in the northeastern part of the Czech Republic, on the borders of Poland and Slovakia. Moravia-Silesia is enjoying growing integration with the regions of Zlin and Olomouc in the Czech Republic, Silesia and Opole in Poland, and Zilina in Slovakia.
The Moravian-Silesian Region is a traditional and modern crossroads in Europe, and is about to become even stronger. The new D47 highway, as an integrated part of the 4th European Multi-model corridor, completes the best north-south link (Warsaw to Finland, Vienna to Italy) in the eastern European Union.
The international Ostrava Leos Janacek Airport is the largest regional airport in the Czech Republic. Its runway can accommodate the world’s largest cargo and passenger planes, and the growing number of businesses in the region means that more and more charter and regularly scheduled flights to around Europe are being added.
The Moravian-Silesian Region has established regional partnerships with the Polish region of Silesia, the Zilina Region in Slovakia, the French region of Lorraine, Rhineland-Westphalia in Germany, the Vietnamese region of Khan Hoa and the Jeollanam-do Region in South Korea.
City of Ostrava is the residential town of the Region with over 300.000 inhabitants. Ostrava is the third-largest city in the Czech Republic, situated 10 km from the border with Poland and 50km from the border with Slovakia. It was formerly a heavy industrial city and now it is the most important traffic and business center of Northern Moravia and Silesia and one of the most important knowledge centres of the Czech Republic. There are three universities – one of them is a well known Polytechnical University. Ostrava is also a cultural city with four theaters, galleries and is famous for holding of concerts, festivals and sport events.
