Mosty u Jablunkova
This small village lies near the head of the Jablunkov pass between the Moravian-Silesian Beskydy and Silesian Beskydy ranges and is easily accessible via the international road and border crossing and an international train service. The town was founded over 600 years ago on an important trade route linking Silesia with the Hungarian kingdom, and the remains of fortresses built to defend local people against Turkish and Tartar invasions can still be seen.
At present, the fortifications are undergoing reconstruction and it is easy to see the floor plan, walls, moats, the remains of the foundations of the original barracks and individual parts of the fortress.
