Description

The Bohemian-Moravian Highlands (Czech: Českomoravská vrchovina or Vysočina; German: Böhmisch-Mährische Höhe) is an extensive and long range of hills and low mountains over 150 kilometres (93 mi) long, which runs in a northeasterly direction across the Czech Republic and forms the border between Bohemia and Moravia. This range roughly coincides with modern region Vysočina ("Highland"). Its highest peaks are the Javořice at 836.5 metres (2,744 ft) and Devět skal, in the north (836.3 metres (2,744 ft)).

Characteristics

It forms a big region of rolling hills and low mountains with heights between about 500 and 800 metres, whose lowlands are relatively densely settled. Its gentle hills are dotted with small farmsteads and also occasionally with holiday apartments and houses. The softly, rounded summits offer beautiful and stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, valleys and castles to hikers and holidaymakers, as well as a variety of sporting facilities.
