In Veselí nad Moravou the term nature is associated mostly with Morava River, its dead arms and Bata Canal, which offer a number of wonderful places. The dead arms of Morava River surrounding Veselí nad Moravou are the result of regulation of the Morava River stream in the first half of the 20th century. In the vicinity of the dead arms are often located wetlands in the form of small pools or floodplains that represent a perfect example of nature in this area before the human intervention.

You can find two nature trails near the dead arms of the Morava River – the former meanders. The first one – titled “Hrnčířské louky – is located in the vicinity of the dead arm of Morava River called Náklí. The trail offers an unique opportunity to observe natural processes. The other one – titled “ U Svodnice“ – The trail is situated in the town district Milokošť. Along the trail there are several wildlife corridors. Most interesting is the wildlife corridor alongside the Svodnice stream.

The Palace Park with its rare old trees, exotic woody species, interconnected lakes with islands and bridges, a fountain and a former peasantry is also a piece of nice and interesting nature. It has become a local tradition, especially for the families with little children, to feed ducks swimming near the bridge between both parts of the park.

You can go for a walk to the local meadows. There you can find the remnants of “fascine” bridges, the Struha brook, or the large lake called Šterk, a remainder after the sandy gravel extraction.

Those who wish to go hiring to higher altitudes, can go to the outskirts of Zarazice in the direction of Vnorovy, where the Lišky hill (231 m) is situated. Going uphill along the street with some wine cellars at its end and a field road, you get to a very interesting place – a hillock followed by a valley, another hillock, and another valley – everything planted with vineyards. In good visibility, you can catch sight of the Low Moravian Dale, the White Carpathians, the Chřiby Mountains, even the Pálava Hills, the Highland of Vizovice, and the Hostýn Hills.

The near hill called Radošov (244 m), situated about 5,5 km southeast of the town centre, offers a similar view. The hill was settled as early as in the prehistoric time. In the 18th century, a manor farmyard used to be here. It was destroyed during the World War II. Today, the south-west slopes of the hill are planted with vineyards. In this direction, you can find also a chapel from the mid-19th century. At the near pond, which has been built recently, you can angle and buy a snack. The place stands out in relief against the hilly landscape of the White Carpathians and it is worth visiting – either on foot or on a bike along the new cycle path. At the top of the hill is situated an observation tower.
