1. Kotouč

Show sight on map

Kotouč was an important archaeological site in Moravia near the town of Štramberk in the Nový Jičín District. It disappeared as a result of limestone mining. The site was also an important biological locality where the now extinct subspecies of the butterfly Red-eyed Ash was found. However, it was caught in Slovakia in 1994 and artificially planted here, at the only place of occurrence in the Czech Republic. The fortified settlement was already known in the sixties of the 19th century. It was introduced into archaeological literature in connection with the research of the nearby Šipka Cave in 1884 by Karel Jaroslav Maška. A summary of the settlement of the locality was given in 1929 by Jan Knies. The first rescue excavations of the already destroyed site were carried out only in 1950 by František Prošek and Lumír Jisl, the second of them in the following year.

In the first quarter, the Czechoslovak Tourist Club built the buildings of Jaroněk's shelter and Hrstek's cottage, currently a restaurant.
