CZ: Brno – The Most Entertaining City in Czechia If You Know Where to Go... I
heading (paragraph): Towns
Published: 1.7.2016

Lonely Planet considers Brno the least interesting city in the Czech Republic. We don't agree necessarily. No huge tourst crowds go into the city. Yet Brno has some magic. It is home to many students, culture, and entertainment. When people hear Brno they usualy think of the peculiar astronomical clock. There is much to the city than that. Masaryk and Mendel universities bring Czech and foreing students into the city. Thus, the night life is vibrant. Together we take a look at the panorama of Brno up from the tower of St Peter and Paul cathedral. We walk through fabulous sreets and we visit Zeleny Trh.

CZ: Jaromerice nad Rokytnou – A Versailles in Moravia
Published: 7.9.2017
Famous Versailles in France was example for many other residencies of nobility. The chateau in Jaromerice, dubbed Moravian Versailles, was, aparently, also built with French Versailles in mind. It is no false advertising to bring more tourists to this gem of the Baroque era. Jan Adam of Questenberk really wished to build his own Versailles in Jaromerice. This town was supposed to become cultural center in the region as well as home to culture and muses. Plans were grandiose yet lack of funding allowed only partial fulfilment of Jan Adam's dream. Even though, the chateau really became center of culture and it has remained venue of many important culture events ever since.

CZ: Brno – The Most Entertaining City in Czechia When You Know Where to Go... I – VIDEO
Published: 7.6.2016
When I have learned recently that Lonely Planet declared Brno the least interesting city in the Czech Republic I couldn’t understand. Then I realized that it was good they said it after all. Had crowds of tourists been going there every day as they go to Prague it would soon loose its magic. Brno is a city of universities, fun, culture and many small, lovely places. The turning clock in the shape of a male genitalia from which a small glass ball falls out every hour. Smoking road signs are really to be found only here… New York Times was much more smarter. They put Brno on the list of 52 places where to go in 2016!

CZ: South Moravia – The Land of the Sun, Wine, and Hospitality
Published: 9.6.2016
When the Creator was giving he was particularly generous to the south Moravians. Thus, they could call their land the “land of wine.” He gave them the most sun in the Czech lands as well as warm climate doing good to grapes but bolstering recreational activities as well – for instance at Vranovska dam, Brnenska dam or on the lakes near Palava. So what waits here for visitors? Great Moravian landmarks, castles, chateaus, sacral buildings, great works of engineering, border fortresses, and beautiful places in nature. There is no coincidence in south Moravia being the second most interesting locality for tourists right next to Prague.

CZ: Valtice – Moravian Capital of Wine – VIDEO
Published: 5.7.2016
It was a forgotten borderline town. Nobody would travel there. Today, it is a growing center of wine where many talented people work. Valtice town is, like Lednice, part of the UNESCO world heritage. Apart from beautiful Renaissance-Baroque chateau or a park, there is the famous Wine Saloon, two beautiful churches, a number of interesting houses, as well as several buildings scattered across the Lednice-Valtice cultural landscape. We recommend you to spend at least couple of hours in Valtice while on you are on your trip across south Moravia. However, the best would be to spend a whole day there.
