Bohemian-Moravian Highlands

Bohemian-Moravian Highlands

 

the southwestern section of the Bohemian Massif in Czechoslovakia. The Bohemian-Moravian Highlands measure approximately 150 km in length and as much as 100 km in width. They rise to a maximum elevation of 837 m at Javorová Skála. The highlands are composed chiefly of granites and gneisses. The relief consists mainly of hills and low mountains cut by rivers, with individual rocky crests in the Žd’árské Vrchy and other regions. The highlands feature broad-leaved and coniferous forests, and landforms include mountains and pastures.
