Klimkovice has a small town charm that offers everything a person could desire when planning a day trip. A historical town square and chateau are located in the heart of the city. In addition, a section of Klimkovice, called Hýlov, is considered a relaxation zone, which not only features beautiful views of the Beskydy Mountains, but is also home to the local spas. Czech hockey coach Vladimír Vůjtek is a famous native of this city.
It is said that this Silesian town blossomed along the left bank of the Odra River as early as the 14th century. Throughout its history, the city has preserved its agricultural culture, despite the fact that in the 18th century, it was the first location in the region where coal was discovered. The coal boom did not sway the governor of Klimkovice to allow construction in the city and the mines were, instead, built in Ostrava. It was if he could somehow foresee that in the, in following centuries, the greatest wealth would be found in the tranquillity and spa atmosphere that the town has safeguarded.
Today, Klimkovice is primarily famous for its iodine-bromine spas on Hylov Hill. Guests who come here for treatment can visit the Renaissance Chateau, which is currently a museum, or the Saint Catherine Church. Visitors can admire the Baroque statue of Saint Sebastian, who protected the city from the plague. The breath-taking landscapes along the Odra River are perfect for leisurely walks or bicycle rides.
