For centuries, Hradec nad Moravicí was the centre of Opavské Slezsko. This small city, home to a beautiful chateau surrounded by stunning natural landscapes, is where the stories of internationally renowned celebrities played out. The local breed of sheep was admired by the Russian czar himself, and later was the foundation of the flocks in Australia.
As early as the 8th century, a hillfort stood where the chateau stands today. During the Thirty Years' War, the Danish army established a production of false coins here that were minted along the cliff side of the old brewery.

The city experienced its greatest boom during the era of the Lichnowsky princes. Their chateau hosted the composers Beethoven and Liszt, as well as a performance by violinist Niccolò Paganini.

The area was also made famous by the breeding programme of merino sheep that Russian czar Alexander I brought home with him. The local herds served as a foundation for those in Australia.

 
The Šance fortifications are a short distance away from Hradec nad Moravicí. Construction of the fortifications was ordered in 1789 by Emperor Joseph II, who came here in the company of General Laudon. As legend has it, the famous military commander caught a cold during one of his inspection tours, and died shortly thereafter in Nový Jičín.

The Weisshuhn Canal is a one-of-a-kind technical attraction; it stretches four kilometres to the paper-making factory in Žimrovice built in the late 19th century.
