On the border between Moravia and Silesia, Fulnek is a pearl of baroque architecture. The city has ties to John Amos Comenius, who worked here as the last bishop of the Unity of the Brethren. Today, local residents are proud to call their city home to Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitová.
 
Exploration of the Moravské Kravařsko Region would not be complete without a visit to the city of Fulnek. This historical city is rightfully considered one of the greatest gems of the Baroque era, not just within the Moravia-Silesia Region, but within the entire Czech Republic. The city was founded in 1293, most likely by lords from Lichtenburg. Fulnek was part of the Amber Trail merchant's route, which linked the countries around the Baltic Sea with lands on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea.

The most famous slice of local history is the story of Unity of the Brethren preacher, theologian, and globally renowned philosopher, John Amos Comenius. It was in Fulnek that Comenius preached after his ordination as a priest. He worked here as rector of the Unity of the Brethren school. John Amos Comenius's life here is remembered by a memorial in honour of the scholar.

Petra Kvitová

Petra Kvitová was born in 1990, and her biographies list her place of birth as Bílovec. But this is only because Fulnek does not have its own maternity ward. Her life—as well as her early athletic career—are intimately tied to Fulnek, the city she calls home. After she won the Wimbledon tennis tournament on 2011, she also became an honorary citizen of the city.

The city suffered great devastation during the Thirty Years' War, when Fulnek became the headquarters of a garrison of the Swedish army. Another tragedy came with the end of the Second World War, when a large portion of the city's centre was more or less razed to the ground.
Visitors to Fulnek can look forward primarily to a historical city centre, a Capuchin monastery, and the Černá věž (Black Tower). The complex of the Saint Joseph Church features the beautifully restored Ss Roch and Sebastian cemetery chapel. The city can also be explored with a tour guide. The chateau is perched on the hilltop and can be seen far and wide as it dominates the city landscape.
