The city Most
Most is the small city under the Ore Mountains, approx. 90 km north of the capital city Prague. Modern architecture is for this city typical, with a few historical elements, which are from ancestral city Most – today nonexistent because of coal mining. It is possible to visit especially moved church of assumption of the Virgin Mary and the view point from the 12th century – The castle Hnevin. Not only landmark lovers have one’s own back. Horse-race area Hipodrom, race circuit Autodrom, but also water area Aquadrom and many others, so is the city Most, too.

We are looking forward to your participation and wish you many sporting accomplishments.
