The two most important centres of the region are Olomouc and Kroměříž. Both towns offer treasures listed as UNESCO world heritage sites: the Baroque Holy Trinity Column in Olomouc, and the Bishop’s Palace and two unique gardens in Kroměříž. The flatland provides excellent conditions for water recreation, hiking, and cycling. Visitor to the town of Loštice can see the manufacture of the traditional smelly cheese tvarůžky.

The regional capital Olomouc lies around 270 km from Prague, 75 km from Brno, and 70 km from Ostrava (all these towns have international airports). Journey by the Super City Pendolino train from Prague takes 2.5 hours.
