South Moravia dominated the clear dominance of the South Bohemian Region after a few years of the Region of My Heart poll. Jihomoravský Kraj dominated in nine of the ten categories, namely 5 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze medal.
The Poll ‘The Region of My Heart’ has been organized this year for the seventh time. Its aim is to map and compare year-round how regions are popular among visitors and where they want to spend their free time. “In terms of attendance in the Czech regions, the South Moravian region is second only to Prague, but South Bohemia is on foot every year. The victory in this poll strengthens our position and is a great appreciation of the work of all those who work in the region in tourism,” said Pavla Pelánová, Director of the Tourist Office-South Moravia.
Jihomoravský Region has won first place in the following categories: summer holidays, hiking, cycling, folklore and traditions and trips with children.
While some regions, such as the Vysočina Region and the Moravian-Silesian Region, did not defend their previous positions, the Olomouc Region has seen a great increase in public interest, and the Liberecký and Zlínský regions improved their medal positions. According to the organizers, the regional patriotism has also strongly manifested in the vote.
Ranking of regions: South Moravia, South Bohemia, Liberec, Zlín, Olomouc, Vysočina, Moravian-Silesian, Hradec Králové, Karlovy Vary, Prague, Pardubice, Central Bohemia, Plzeň and Ústí nad Labem.
