There are two kinds of people: those who prefer to spend their free time in busy cities and those who like to slow down a bit in more peaceful places. If you belong to the latter group, you probably won’t enjoy that much cities like Prague, Brno or Ostrava or places crammed with tourists such as Český Krumlov or Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape. In that case, small towns such as Moravská Třebová may be perfect for you. It’s a beautiful small town mostly forgotten by Czech and foreign tourists alike. And that’s a big shame.
If you’re visiting South Moravia, there is no way you wouldn’t eventually visit the town of Znojmo. I mean, how could you not? It’s historically and culturally one of the most important places in South Moravia and for a good reason! Znojmo is famous for its wine, pickles, history and beautiful architecture. You could say there is something interesting for everyone.
Unless you’re a passionate fan of spelunking, you might think that caves are boring. After all, they’re dark, wet, narrow, and probably full of bats – who are known carriers of dangerous diseases, among other things – and that’s pretty much about it, right? No? If you are one of those people who agree with that statement, then let me try to change your mind because there is one area in the Czech Republic known for its fascinating caves. It lies in the middle of beautiful forests that look like from brothers Grimm’s fairy tales. But don’t worry – there are no evil old witches lurking within!
The Czech Republic has a lot to offer – majestic castles, beautiful châteaus, picturesque squares and streets, Art Nouveau architecture, lovely cafés and fascinating nature. But is there anything for the people who are looking for something authentically Czech as well? Something for those who’d like to learn more about the common people of the past instead of listening to stories about the affluent live-style of aristocrats? Maybe you are also one of those people who are tired of opulence and would rather learn about the local people’s lives and traditions. In that case, you will surely appreciate the region called Moravian Slovakia.
Kroměříž is a city of colorful flowers, cultural gentility, and elegant architecture, which will absolutely amaze you with its appearance. It is is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the Czech Republic. The picturesque historical city, the monumental archbishop’s chateau, the wonderful gardens spreading around the area represent a spectacular beauty included in UNESCO World Heritage List.
When visiting the Czech Republic, most tourists will simply settle for Prague – the Czech Republic’s famous capital. The more curious of them will also go visit Český Krumlov, Karlovy Vary, and other well-known tourist places but the smaller towns remain largely unnoticed, which is definitely a shame because they have a lot to offer. Take Mikulov, for example – this picturesque town in the South Moravia is located near the Austrian border and it is the perfect combination of sun, wine, culture, history, and the Central European architecture. Yet it’s unknown by most. So it’s about time we fix this.
