Pursue recreation opportunities
Just like recreational athletes who may go cycling on the bicycle paths along the river Dřevnice and the Bata Canal, go on a trip to the Vizovice hills and Hostýn hills, to the ZOO (the former ranks among the ten most visited tourist destinations in the Czech Republic) or go skiing on the ski slope located next to one of the University Residence Hall.
