Welcome to Zlín

The city of Zlín and surrounding area can boast of a number of precious natural areas, especially concentrated in the nature parks Želechovické Pastures, Hostýnské Hills, and Vizovické Hills. Those interested in nature and exotic animals will surely appreciate a visit to Zlín's unique zoological garden. To access the beauties of nature, as well as the historical monuments of Zlín and the region around it, we recommend the region's dense network of marked trails for walkers and bicyclists.

Zlín is perhaps most famous for its legacy of modern Functionalist architecture. Before the Second World War the region around Zlín and Otrokovice grew into a unique urban complex, the symbol of which became the famous Zlín Skyscraper. The region's older historic sites include the ruins of Castle Lukov, Castle Malenovice, chateaus in Lešná and Vizovice, the church in Tečovice, the pilgrimage church in Štípa or the Magistrate Mikuláštík’s farmstead in Jasenná.

Zlín is the cultural center of the region; thus it is possi-ble to visit the Museum of Southeastern Moravia or the Museum of Shoemaking; then there is the Regional Art Gallery, the Bohuslav Martinů Philharmonic, the Municipal Theater, and the Small Stage theater scene. The region’s menu of culture events is very broad; there are festivals devoted to theater, classical music, children’ and young people’s ilms, and many folk festivals. There are a number of well-equipped sports areas, a spa in Kostelec with a golf course, and the Health Trail in the woods around Zlín. Winter vacation can be spent on the slopes, or on the cross-country trails in the Hostýnské and Vizovické Hills.
