The heart of the Hana region is very rich in monuments. The historic sights of Olomouc would surely be sufficient, but the region itself has also lots of attractions. The fairytale-like Bouzov Castle is located just about 35 km from Olomouc. Other well known castles include Sovinec Castle or Helfštýn Castle, renowned for its annual gathering of blacksmiths called “Hefaiston”.
Near Olomouc there is the Chateau Náměšť na Hané with a display of traveling coaches of Olomouc bishops and archbishops. Historic carriages and coaches can also be admired in a museum located near the Chateau Čechy pod Kosířem. Mladeč caves and Javoříčko caves are worth a visit as well. Last but not least, an open-air museum Hanacky skansen in Příkazy featuring older lifestyles and crafts to modern audiences is an interesting place to see.
