When Czech King Premysl Otakar II had to resolve a dispute between the Olomouc Bishop Bruno of Schauenburg and the Těšin princes in the middle of the thirteenth century, he decided that the border between the two estates will be the river Ostravice. So the town of Frydlant, which the river flows through, was divided into a Silesian and Moravian part.
People who come to the Beskydy Mountains, normally just pass through Frýdlant. However, its historic beginnings are worth understanding. It's original, historic square encloses a fountain and the Church of St. Bartholomew. In the local monastery, you can admire Baroque statues and a chapel, which is a replica of St. Paul's in Rome.
