Since 2015, there has been a unique building in Dolni Morava full of adventure routes that will take you to the skies.
Where and how to get here…
The Sky Walk is located near the Slamenka cottage, near the upper station of the Sneznik cable cart and the viewpoint called Skalka at an altitude of 1,116 meters above the sea level. The height, which is normally only cruising birds, can be easily reached by a wooden path with strollers or wheelchairs. The Sky Walk can also be reached comfortably by a chairlift.
For lovers of the adventure and fun, there are also several adrenaline attractions such as a relaxation network. Which includes, for example, the so-called “drop”, also a water slide or entertainment called sleeve. The sleeve is an attraction formed by a dense net, which is designed to climb from one floor of the footbridge to another. Another mentioned attraction drop is located at the very top of the Sky Walk. This is a net at a height of 50 meters, on which you can stand and see below yourself. The more adventurous types can then use a great 100-meter-long water slide with windows and several banked turns to get down.
From the highest point of the Sky Walk are breathtaking views of the entire massif of Kralicky Sneznik with the picturesque valley of the Morava River. In the distance, it is possible to see the main ridge of the Jeseniky Mountains, Suchy vrch or the Giant Mountains.
Something about the creation…
The design for this building comes from the Brno architect and university lecturer of the Technical University of Liberec Zdenek Franek, who described its whole principle in the words of “The uniqueness of the building, which is in the extent of the use of wood in a building of this size and also in the fact that it creates a new kind of experience where one is better aware of one’s true trifle in the blossom of nature.”
Over 380 tons of steel, 300 m2 of larch glued laminated timber and 250 m2 of planed prisms were used for the entire construction of the Sky Walk. The tower can withstand windstorms of up to 200 kilometers per hour and in case of good weather conditions, up to 4,000 people can be evenly distributed in the tower.
