This is a massive mountain range that covers 600 km in length and crosses from Poland to the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and the Ukraine.
This museum is open all year round and makes a perfect pitstop as you explore through the region around the mountains.
The main attraction for the city can be found in the chateau which is home to the visitor center, an exhibition of hats, and a museum centered around General Ernst Gideon Laudon.
Set on the rocky hill, the castle that once stood here is no more but a slender, stone tower rises above the town and can be seen for kilometers.
Today, it’s an easy trail to get to the Šipka cave and a perfect side detour during your time here. Along the way, you’re also treated with the most stunning panoramic views of Štramberk.
The name, Štramberk ears, will make you cringe but it is in fact a sweet pastry made of honey-spiced dough and twisted to look like twister ears.
