The region of Zlaté Hory is the starting point for trips to the Polish border, particularly to the lakes "Otmuchov-ská jezera", and to Nisa and Prudnik. Zlaté Hory was an important gold mining centre in the past. Predominantly a mining settlement it received a town charter in 1306. In those times it was called Zuckmantel and presented the commercial background of the near-by castle Edelštejn. Even after the exhaustion of the mines the town flourished, this time due to development of cloth and duvet-cover production and the yarn trade. The mining activity ceased in the late 19th century. It was restored in the sixth decade of the last century however and until 1994 non-ferrous metals and also some gold was mined.

The glorious history of the city is recalled in the Municipal Museum on the town square. A shadow in the history of Zlaté Hory is that of the witch trials. (This city was a place of birth of the notorious inquisitor Franz Heinrich Boblig) Reminders of the gold mining are the golden mills in the mining museum, mining natural trials and an annual competition in gold mining. The renowned pilgrimage Church of the Virgin Mary the Helper near Zlaté Hory, a former famous pilgrimage site, once again draws its adherents.

The natural reservoir Rejvíz with its small lakes "Mechová jezírka" and rare flora species is considered to be the pearl of Zlaté Hory. Rocks brought by a glacier from Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea can be found both in region of Zlaté Hory and Vidnava region. These rocks represent namely porphyry, claws, calcites with fossils and also wandering boulders from the Finnish granite, the so called Rapakivi.
