Tips for trips

Those wanting to cool down in South Moravia (the region has the highest number of sun hours of any Czech region) during hot summer days should go under ground. There you can find many world's firsts and you can enjoy it regardless if you are adrenaline seeker, a senior or you have children.

Magical Caves

The Moravian Karst enjoys a shining spot among South Moravia's tourist attractions. It is the largest and the best developed karst area in the Czech Republic. You can find it north of Brno. There are over 1600 registered caves in its underground. Five of the caves are open to the public: Balcarka, Katerinska, Vypustek, Sloupsko-sosuvske caves and especially the labyrinth inside Punkva caves in the Pusty deep, one of the most popular locations in the Czech Republic. There are many underground spaces decorated with dripstones. Especially great is the vista down on the bottom of Macocha, a 138,5-meter gorge. Visitor spend part of the tour by sailing down the Punkva river – the longest underground river in the Czech Republic (10 kilometers).

Sloupsko-sosuvske caves   Macocha

Balcarka cave

Obri dom (Giant's dome) – the largest underground cave in the Czech Republic – is another unique sight in the Moravian Karst. The dome's size is  70 × 30 × 60 meters and it belongs to the so called Rudicke propadani. This and the Byci rock are the deepest and longest caves in the country.  Amaterske caves are country's  longest cave network – 34,9 kilometers. The longest trail for visitors is to be found in Sloupsko-sosuvske caves (1 230 meters). The largest caves open to the public is the Katerinska cave's Main dome (97 × 44 × 20 meters). Concerts often take place here. The steepest cable car (average inclination of 63,41 %) takes you to the Upper bridge of the Macocha gorge inside the Punkva caves.

Katerinska cave

In the southern part of the South Moravia, there are other cool caves to enter. For instance, Na Turoldu in Mikulov. However, people with physical disabilities are not advised to go to the cave. Close to Vranov nad Dyji, there are Ledove Sluje in the Podyji national park. Ledove Sluje is a network of 14 cave 400 meters long and 30 meters deep. You will surely cool down in local micro climate in any season of the year. Moreover, there is an artifical cave inside sandstone massive of Milenka hill in Rudka u Kunstatu town. Be ready to see sculptures of the Blanicti knights or President T. G. Masaryk.

A Touch of History

It is a very well known fact that there is a lot evidence of Prehistoric settlement inside the caves. However, you can actually travel back in time and learn about Pavlov once again in the underground. The recently opened Archeopark displays artifacts from the era of the mammoth hunters. The park is basically all hidden in the terrain. In 2016, it was awarded with the prestigious Building of the Year award! Here you get right at the center of archeological excavations. The exhibition displays the settlement of the region before 25 to 30 thousand years. It shows essential discoveries made at Pavlov, Dolni Vestonice and Milovice. In this region, the oldest bone remains of the modern man were discovered. Moreover, Venus of Dolni Vestonice is the oldest known ceramic figure in the world!

Other findings on display are linked to South Moravian more recent history (8th to 10th century) particularly to Velka Morava, the arrival of Cyril and Methodius and the beginnings of Christianity in the country. You can see these artifacts in Mikulcice Slavic stronghold, in Pohansko near Breclav or in Hradiste on the outskirts of Znojmo.

Under Historic Towns' Paving

However, it is chilly down there in the underground of Znojmo's historic center. The adrenaline in Znojmo's undergroundunderground of Znojmo is the largest underground corridor and cellar network in the Czech Republic. Moreover, it is one of the largest labyrinths in Central Europe. This unique labyrinth is almost 27 kilometers long. In some places, the labyrinth has as many as 4 storeys – not all accessible though. You can either take the classic scary tour or one of the three adrenaline routes.

There is a vast underground in Brno too. The public can access the medieval labyrinth under Zelny Trh, the Coinmaster's cellar on Dominikanske square or the ossuary at St Jacob church. The accessibility of the underground to the public has been increasing. Visitors can now see utility tunnels or one of the most secretive shelters right under Spilberk castle. The shelter was built during the Nazi rule as Luftschutz which was supposed to shelter against against allied bombing of Brno. During communist times, the shelter was to protect region's top officials. Don't forget to take a flashlight with your to a night tour in the shelter known by the official designation as 10-Z. When exploring the underground of Brno, don't miss casemates of Spliberk. In the Baroque times, these were feared prison for the worst criminals from across the entire monarchy. Later, political dissidents would be imprisoned inside this massive fortress.brněnské podzemí Mincmistrovský sklep

Cellars Veiled in Wine Aroma

The two-storey underground of Slavkov-Austerlitz chateau has charisma of its own. However, this one is mostly used for activities revolving around farming. Valtice underground stacked with wineDown, inside the cellars of Chateau Valtice, there is the official headquarters of National Wine Center. Valtice underground – a unique 710-meter long labyrinth of cellars – is a place where you see wine around every corner.  This underground space was created  in 1289 togethwer with the foundation of a Minorite cloister. There is much charm inside the Painted cellar, Satov. Sculptures made by the folk artist Maxmilian Appeltauer decorate the cellar. The artist native to Satov spent all his life, every Sunday for 36 years, decorating the cellar. Not even the loss of his arm during the WWII prevented him from continuing in his work. Surprisingly, wine has never been made here. It was only consumed…

Well, there are many cellars in the South Moravian underground where you can cool yourself down with some delicious wine during hot summer days. The region has the highest number of wine cellars per square meter in the Czech Republic!

On Bikes

If a visit the region of the Moravian Karst and seeing the caves in one of Europe's most important karst regions is not much of adrenaline to you, then try a "singletrail". Narrow, one-way forest paths which are carefully placed in the nature and built only forsingletrail the bikers. The Singletrail Moravsky Kras is for anyone of any skill.

Spa Tradition Reborn

The south-Moravian spa tradition began as early as 14th century. The golden age came in the 18th and 19th century. Nobility, towns, and private persons tried to establish a bottling plant, or spa by any quality spring. For instance, there was reported an existing spa in Sedlec u Mikulova as early as the 14th century. Tomas Jordan in his book "Kniha o vodach hojitedlnych neb teplicech moravskych" from 1580 wrote about healing springs in Petrov. Moreover, there is Saratica, an area of natural bitter water spring  s of 240 wells across 5 mining areas from Saratice to Tesany and Luze. Then there is what was a natural sulphur water spring in Sitborice, Cejc. Next there are healing springs in Velke Roudce and many other palces across the region. However, the spa boom was ceased by the WWII. Many spas disappeared during the wartime.

spa pool, Hodonin

It was not until the end of the 20th century when the spa industry was reborn. During the drill for oil in the Hodonin area, a reservoir of Tertiary iodine-bromine wates was discovered. In the begining of the 20th century, geothermal (40–46 °C) healing water reservoirs rich on hydrogen sulphide were disscovered under the Pavlovske hills. Their capacity allow for contsruction of spa facilities for the present as well as future generations. The Pasohlavky aquapark is another addition to spas in Hodonin and Lednice. Moreover, there are many other investing oportunities.

More Iodine than by the Sea

During the Tertiary era, there appeared a reservoir of very mineralized iodine-bromine water. This was in the time when Moravia rose up from the bottom of the Prehistoric sea. Iodine evaporates during the healing therapy. The resulting iodine microclima contains even more iodine than there is in any sea area. Iodine is absorbed by inhalation, skin, and mucous membranes. The area with the newest Czech spa is situated in the Palava region. Vineyards covers the slopes of Palava and you can find the Lednice-Valtice cultural landscape in the area. The Lednice-Valtice is a large UNESCO-grade area with many amazing structures.

Lednice, nová kolonáda

Guaranteed Rejuvenation and Longevity

Solanka healing and relaxing baths, the most effectiv balneology treatment to cure vein diseases, locomotr system, neorological, gynecological, and skin problems are not the only healing spring in Moravia's south. The folklor, wine, and hospitality of Slovacko region undoubtedly belong to the full "wellness" experienceL. By the way, wine is, perhaps, as important as healing springs for health. Scientists can't find consensus on what agens contianed in wine are more beneficial to human health nor they can't reach agreement on why local white wine supports the levels of HDL (dubbed "friendly fat") in blood. But they agree on one thing: modest wine consumption has good effects on human organism, heat, veins, it increases life span, and improves sexual functions.

procházka po vinohradu

Drinking Treatment is Not Necessary

Already ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans knew that grapes and wine are key for eternal youth. To make wine the source of youth you don't need to drink it. Scientists found out that grapes and wine contain many active compounds such as vitamines, minerals, polyphenols, and carboxylic acid aiding sking and holding back ageing. Who would like to try wine bath which stimulates blood circulation and easens breathing problems? Well, wine baths are also offered.

 

 

Those who try the "south-Moravian wellness" is going to return like a new-born from south Moravia. It doesn't matter which of local healing springs you decide for..

South Moravia is often called the land of sun and wine. The number of cultural sights of different historic periods is without parallel in th Czehc Republic. However, no other architectonic style is more present here than the Baroque.

Milotice chateau width=

Please accept our invintation for a Baroque trip which will introduce you to magnificent aristocratic mansions, monumental churches, cloisters, little chapels, or ways of the cross. You will walk on the land ruled by important noble families and church orders during the 17th and 18th century. These became the richest investors after the battle on the White Mountain. To buttress their positions they built opulent chateaux, and vast church compounds with richly decorated churches inside them. They called to south Moravia important architects, painters, sculptors, stucco worker, and musicians mostly from Italy, France, or the royal court in Wien.

Therefore, we can see and enjoy Baroque-style sights across the entire region. There is much to see in Brno alone besides churches. There is the underground below Nova Radnice and Pod Zelnym Market, underground ossuary by St Jacob, and the dark casemates at Spilberk Castle

Brno underground – the coin master's cellar

South of Brno, there is Mikulov with its amazing Baroque architecture. Mikulov is considered as an example of north Italian architecture in Moravia. The Dietrichstein family used it as their family residence. Moreover, there was a significant jewish community throughout the Baroque-era and beyond. The Lednice-Valtice cultural landscape (which is protected by the UNESCO) is in the near vicinity. Wine cellars of Pavlov are part of the local landmark reserve.

If you set out west of Brno you must see Vranov nad Dyji chateau on a rocky Znojmo – St Nicholas churchprotection in the beautiful region of POdyji. Be sure to stop inVranov nad Dyjí chateau – the hall of ancestors Znojmo. There explore vast underground (including an adrenaline trail), the former Deblinsky chateau, majestic Baroque-style cloisters in Louka, and Hradiste.

There are many important places of pilgrimage outside of Brno. For instance, Krtiny which is related to the missionaires Cyril and Methodius, Sloup by Macocha, or Vranovsky church where the tomb of the House of Lichtenstein. The chateau in Rajec nad Svitavou is an amazing example of the French-style Baroque architecture. Both Lomnice u Tisnova chateau and its grounds show the village urbanism. The preserved Baroque pharmacy in Letovice, chateau interior and gardens in Lysice are all worth your attention.

Other Baroque gems are right in the outskirts of Brno – "Little Versailles“ in Slavkov u Brna or Milotice, the latter has amazing and game park. There are mostly wine cellars in the Area 63 which is situated in Petrov-Plze village. It is very close to Straznice the location of the well-known opena air museum showing the dwellings of our ancestors in southeast Moravia. You can see traditional crafts in the smithery in Tesany.
