The centre of the region is the town of Jeseník. Originally it was called Freiwaldau (Frývaldov), which can be translated as a “free forest“. The former Gräfenberg spa, famous throughout Europe, now renamed to Jeseník Spa, is part of the city today. It was founded by Vincenz Priessnitz, who joined its hydrotherapy principles to exercise programmes. Numerous memorials, subscribed for by his patients, recall the success of Priessnitz’s methods. Currently, neuroses and diseases of the respiratory system are being treated here. The house, where Priessnitz was born is now being used as an exhibition centre. In order to learn more about the history of spa, you can follow the the natural trail in the surrounding countryside.

The region of Jeseník has long been notorious for the witch trials that are marked by several stopping points on the biking trial “Čarodejnická cyklostezka”. North-east of the town of Jeseník spreads Česká Ves. There you can visit a covered swimming-pool and a modern adrenalin park in the ranch Orel. Near Jeseník, in Dolní Lipová, Johann Schroth has founded climatic spa, formed by means of a complex of buildings. From here it is not far to the caves Na Pomezí. And should you be heading to the saddle “Videlské sedlo”, you will get to Bělá pod Pradědem. From here, marked hiking trials lead to the most attractive peaks of the Hrubý Jeseník Mountains, Šerák, Keprník, and also to the highest mountain of Jeseníky Mountains, the Praděd. These destinations also attract tourists from the saddle “Červenohorské sedlo”, a winter ski resort.
