To eager tourists it offers many things they like - good food, beautiful sights, guaranted warm weather, sports and cultural activities, but also unique wine . We will invite you to the castle, the seat of the Liechtenstein that the inherent Valtice, later, dear readers.
In Valtice as if the air smelled as wine. Not only in the wine cellars, which are numerous in Valtice, the capital of wine. Perhaps it is the wine what makes the mood in Valtice, especially in the historic center, very relaxed. At Namesti Svobody on the freshly mowed lawn lying about most visitors. I can withstand hours lying under the spreading trees near the fountain, the Plague Column, the church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the castle grounds and within easy reach of a drunkard.
Valtice offers many activities
But if the one who went to Valtice, just rolled on the lawn of many would impoverish. This town offers, in addition to wonderful wines, also a lot of culture and entertainment, but also instruction in the castle Torture Museum, the Museum of the Iron Curtain, the City Museum, and the National Agricultural Museum. The Museum of the Iron Curtain is the very first in the Czech Republic and shows the work of the border patrols, but also techniques that helped guard the hermetic state border. Valtice is at the edge of Dolnomoravsky ravine, just 1.3 kilometers from the border with Austria.
Those who find museums perhaps a bit sterile, that comes into its own in the air - to be in the Herb Garden Valtice, lying in Lednice-Valtice area that is included in the UNSECO list. Especially in spring, which this year is approaching fast, more than three hundred herbs show people its charm. As soon as a good dry limits, you can go to trail barefoot , a three-mile radius with lots of interesting and informative stops where bare feet can "feel" a lot of different natural materials. Not even at Valtice Educational Vineyard Path nobody will get bored.
It seems as a magic the atmosphere the landmarks in Valtice create. They are located mostly in the historical center and locals know how to treat tourists. On the other hand, masterly control tactics how to make their guests to stay longer, preferably in the early morning hours. In Moravia, will probably happen about that closes if you drink, blurred, that someone lifted the chair since fallen. Moravians can sell their products with grace and mischief and they do not worry about some extra hours you stay there. When the good humor and the wine flows, one just can not sleep. In Valtice and indeed everywhere in the wine-growing regions in Moravia, this tradition has been operating for a number of years.
