Despite the name, they stand in southern Moravia, east of Brno. In the east, they border on the Slovak-Moravian Carpathians; in the south, they stretch down to the Thaya (Dyje) Valley and the South-Moravian Carpathians. The mountains are mostly forested, planted with beech and spruce trees. It is one of the most important agricultural areas for wine grapes, apricots and peaches, and vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.
The Central Moravian Carpathians are geomorphologically subdivided into:
- Ždánice Forest (Czech: Ždánický les)
- Litenčice Hills (Litenčická pahorkatina)
- Chřiby (Mars Mountains), with Mt. Brdo, highest point of the Moravian uplands
- Kyjov Hills (Kyjovská pahorkatina).
