Natural Park Podbeskydí [ Natural Park ]
Natural park Podbeskydí with the area of 125 km2 was proclaimed in 1994 in the region of district Nový Jičín in the most noteworthy part of upland under Radhošť, which is represanted by Highlands of Štramberk with two different parts - Ženklava's and Hodslavice's one. Upland unter Radhošť reaches into the area of the district Frýdek - Místek and Nový Jičín. From the geomorfological point of view it was divided into three zones:
Along the northwestern edge of Moravia-Silesian Beskydy mountains there is distinctive furrow at the foot of the mountains of Veřovice, aroded in hell slates in Veřovice, that opens on the east by Frenštát pod Radhoštěm and Frýdlant nad Ostravicí into hollow.
In the area among Sedlnice, Příbor, Brušperk and Paskov there over the Moravian gate only mindly raises upland of Příbor, into which in the valleys and lower altitudes seep through Quaternary sediments of sands, gravel sands and loesses. In spite of considerable agricultural usage is this countryside varied thanks to scattered forest areas.
In the wide middle part a varied and at view extraordinarly beautiful Highlands of Štramberk spread out. In the western part (of Hodslavice) numerous hillocks and ridges of volcanic rock of picrits and tephrites, in the central part (of Ženklava) the peaks of limestone reefs of Štramberk play an important role in it.
To the east in the district Frýdek-Místek a group of pasha and godul sandstones projects, whose ridges (Palkovice's small mountains) surround the Kozlovice's hollow). An obvious exception from the surface of highlands performs the main ridge of Ondřejník with its peak Skalka (964 m).
