About 10-km southwest of Litovel, in the middle of the woods, pastures and meadows 346 above sea level we can find the little village of Bílsko. We descent to is from the southwestern slopes, where there is situated Vilémov. The northern neighbours of Bílsko are villages Loučka and Cholina, the eastern one is Odrlice and the southern neighbour is Cakov. Despite few inhabitants and the fact that Bílsko does not have more than 48 houses, the village can be proud of its activities and involvement in several projects. In 2003 it was even awarded the Diploma for a sensitive approach to the spiritual wealth of the village.

The monument dominating the village is the protestant church with a vicarage. Other monuments in the village is the Calvary, which is a small sacred rendered brick building dating back to the 19th century and the reconciliatory cross with damaged arms (it is hard to say when it was built but it was sometimes between the 15th and 17th century) that is situated next to the Calvary. In Bílsko there used to be a monastery of the order of Redemptorists, where in 1903 there was established Noviciate for juveniles, however nowadays it is used for other purposes. The courage of the locals is witnessed by the Memorial for the Victims killed during World War I.

In the village they have old traditions – even at present the locals build and pull down the Maypole or at the end of winter they carry the Banshee, even though the life of the inhabitants does not depend so much on the seasons as it used to in the past.

Despite the fact Bílsko is not a part of the Hanácká rovina /plain/ the original folk costume of Haná looks very specific here. It used to be quite complex as it reflected the wealth and hospitality of the region. The male costume consisted of yellow leathers and boots up to the knee, blue vest, in the summer a coat with a wide collar and in winter a yellow fur-coat and a hat. Women and children used to wear red kerchiefs on their heads that also covered their ears. Women also wore short shirts with a camisole on top, in Czech the so-called “lajdík”, short full shorts till knees and a green or other colour apron on them, in winter they wore a doublet with puffy sleeves, in summer they wore shoes in winter hairy white slippers.
