The total length of the section is 33,3 km. On the fourth stage of our journey, we will be guided mostly by comfortable cycle paths on the banks of the River Morava. Passing through the village of Kvasice, with its chateau, which is inaccessible to the public, we will come to Otrokovice, the industrial centre of the region. Here we have the opportunity to extend our trip and go to the city of Zlín, the regional capital promoted by the Baťa family.
From Otrokovice we continue along the River Morava to Napajedla. The town is dominated by a Baroque castle with a large park. On the next leg of our trip we will pass a number of old arms of the river and above all see a unique technical monument – the Baťa Canal. There is a regular boat service on the canal, including sightseeing cruises. Cruise boats usually also carry bicycles.
We arrive in Uherské Hradiště, which is the heart of the Slovácko region, but also one of the best towns for cycling in this country. The town itself and its surroundings are very attractive and definitely merit a visit. We can go to Velehrad, the country’s most famous pilgrimage place, see the monuments of the Great Moravian Empire in the open-air Archaeological Museum at Modrá, near Velehrad, or visit the castle of Buchlov. The town of Uherské Hradiště or the neighbouring Staré Město are ideal places to stay overnight.
Czech Rail Bike
The recommended starting point for the Moravian Trail is Hulín (line no. 330: Přerov - Břeclav).
From Hulín, you will ride only 6 km along cycle route no. 5033 to Kroměříž, where the "cycle highway" to Vnorovy begins. If you get tired, you can reach the nearest railway station at any time, as line no. 330: Přerov - Břeclav runs parallel to the Moravian Trail.
