VISITOR CENTER ŠANCE FORTIFICATION in Mosty u JablunkovA

Centuries ago, Šance prevented foreigners from entering the Jablunkov Pass and further into the country – but today, it attracts visitors

The Jablunkov šance is a typical example of the fortification of a mountain pass. It is a unique fortification monument, which has no comparable analogy not only in the Czech Republic.

The fortification system built on the southern and southeastern border of Silesia from the 16th to the 19th century is located on the territory of three countries – Czechia, Slovakia and Poland, especially in the vicinity of the Jablunkov Pass (551 – 605  m a.s.l.). Since prehistoric times, a trade route has led here, which in the Middle Ages was called the copper path for the predominant trade in copper transported from the Upper Hungarian mines through Silesia to the whole of Europe.

ŠANCE FORTIFICATION is the winner of the tourism award in the Moravian-Silesian region
