The name of the place is taken from the first owner, and is still in use on today's maps. In this rocky region, people have survived by submitting to the laws of Mother Nature. Some of the locals are in fact descendants of the original population who settled here in the 18th century, among the Vrábl dynasty.
Besides the typical Wallachian landscape, with its meadows, pastures, hedgerows and forests, a relatively high percentage of Fagus (beech) woodlands, and traditional pastoralist dwellings, Hucul (or Carpathian) horses graze here year-round, which is one of the largest breed in the rest of Moravia. Untouched treasures of wildlife can also be found here. Venture into the meadows and you will spot various kinds of orchids; for instance, the early-purple orchid, lesser butterfly-orchid, fragrant orchid or globe orchid. Drier spots, which have been exposed by grazing, may have stands of the increasingly rare mountain everlasting, also known as "pussytoes". "Žídkův dub", an almost 200-year old memorial oak tree, forms an imposing landmark. If you are lucky, you may get to hear the distinctive calls of the corn crake or the Eurasian wryneck, or witness the Eurasian skylark nesting on the ground.
The educational trail Vrábl's pastures, installed by the North Moravian regional chapter of the ČSOP in 2017, is about 1,200 m long and features five stations. In addition to standard info panels, visitors also find two panels with panoramic photographs, and a sturdy wooden bench on which to rest and take in the beautiful view.
