The Vyso?ina Region (IPA: ['v?sotna]; Czech: Kraj Vyso?ina "Highlands Region", German: Region Hochland) is an administrative unit (Czech: kraj) of the Czech Republic, located partly in the south-eastern part of the historical region of Bohemia and partly in the south-west of the historical region of Moravia. Its capital is Jihlava.

The region is the location of two mountain ranges, árské vrchy and Jihlavské vrchy, both part of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. The Vyso?ina Region is home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the most in any region in the Czech Republic.[2] The region is one of just three in the country (the others being Prague and the Central Bohemian Region) which does not have a border with a foreign country.[3]
