Our mission and history

Sluňákov is a community interest company offering experience and knowledge developing a respectful attitude of people to nature and themselves.

Our mission

Sluňákov was founded and developed mainly thanks to the support of the Statutory City of Olomouc since 1992. Nowadays, it offers its activities for schools, teachers, families with children and general public in a modern low-energy house on the edge of the protected landscape area Litovelské Pomoraví in Horka nad Moravou. The house is surrounded by a unique open-air gallery named Litovelské Pomoraví House of Nature, where the visitors and participants of the programs can experience unusual stories when visiting the bottomland landscape.


The idea of Sluňákov and its activities are related to the effort of deepening the close connection between people and nature and the landscape, in which they live. The meaning of this activity is that people are natural beings, that are an inherent part of the living world and are connected by a fragile entanglement of relations with everything that forms them.
