Visit the castle in Lednice in southern Moravia enjoys also the one, who is not too interested in historic interiors. Maybe even you can spend all day walking the extensive castle area. Someone might feel better in a geometrically symmetrical French park with flowers and statues in the immediate neighbourhood of the castle, the other prefers more natural English park with ponds and several romantic buildings locked. The most popular of them is unique in Central Europe as a lookout tower in the Turkish style, a minaret. Arcade building with a tall slender tower is 60 meters and offers three levels of viewing galleries. At the top you have to go through 302 steps, but the reward is a unique view into the park and surrounding area with the majestic Massif Pálava on the horizon. Minaret Road to around the pond is less than two kilometres long and one can go by foot, boat or car with the horses yoke.

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.
Spring is on and the tourist season is underway. Go to nature, culture and do some sightseeing. There are countless of them in the Czech Republic and today you can see Pernštejn Castle with us.
The Czech Republic has many beautiful castles and chateaux that are open to the public. Whether in Bohemia or Moravia, the film footage has made Karlštejn everlastingly famous, the same goes for Pernětejn, Bouzov or Křivoklát. But we often forget small towns, townships, and villages where there are castles and chateaux as well. One of such is Lysice Chateau.
It is unthinkable to drive through Valtice and missing local chateau; besides wine the Valtice chateau is the main tourist attraction. Chateau Valtice is part of Lednice-Valtice area that is included in the UNSECO heritage site since 1996.
We visited Pavlov in summer heat. What is interesting about his place located in southern Moravia? Winegrowers from Pavlov, a small village, were among the first who joined their forces to make wine of Palava famous all-around.
Not only Mikulov but its chateau, the greatest sight here, is closely related to wine tradition in Palava region. Mikulov Chateau is located on a quite high rock known as the Chateau Hill. It looms over the city. From there you can see all its nooks and beyond.
Palava is not only a place where wine of specific taste and aroma grows. It is also a place of many archeological excavation sites. Today we will take you to Vestonice.
When somebody longs to find a place in the Czech Republic where he can take a deep breath, he can go to Moravia to Valtice
Only couple of days ago, a unique interactive exhibition has been opened in the heart of the Moravian Karst (at the meeting point of Suchy and Pusty Zleb) near Skalni Mill. The exhibition take you through the history of this place in a very innovative way.
A trip to Buchlov castle was so enchanting we decided to spend another weekend at Czech castles and chateaus. This time we decided Milotice set closer to us. The chateau is located at the edge of the town bearing the same name.
Who likes Moravia and its southern part have to love Mikulov. It is an old town smelling after wine, hot Palavian air. Altogether it is wrapped in kindness of local inhabitants.
Once we introduced you the new interactive exhibition in the Moravian Karst Nature House we move bit further. Today we talk about our starting locality which is called Rocky Mill. This one is unique for many reasons.
