CZ, Malhostovická pecka: From Kuřim Through Zlobice to Rare Pulsatillas – VIDEO
Northwest of Brno, an unusual rock formation, the Malhostovická Pecka, rises from the flat landscape around Malhostovice. In the sunny habitats, the endangered large-flowered passerine grows here, which offers a wonderful spectacle in the spring.
You can find the natural monument Malhostovické kopečky by the road between Čebín and Malhostovice, less than 20 kilometers from Brno in the direction of Tišnov. You can easily reach the locality by car, you can park at the nearby lime kiln or in Malhostovice, but we recommend that you take a train and drive to either Čebín or Kuřim.
You can combine the trip with a visit to the nearby Čebínek lookout tower and the lookout tower on the protected Zlobice hill closer to Kuřim. In the slightly undulating landscape, you can easily manage the journey with children, the entire route is less than 11 kilometers long. Alternatively, park at the stadium in Kuřim and set off on a slightly shorter circuit, omitting the Čebínek lookout tower.
If you go to Malhostovice Peck in April, a beautiful spectacle awaits you. Even before the grass grows and taller herbs, purple bell-shaped flowers bloom here, which belong to the highly endangered large-flowered passerines. The plants are covered with fine white hairs, thanks to which the passerines, especially early in the morning with dewdrops, look really beautiful. Even mature testicles do not lack elegance thanks to the white hairiness.
If you come to see the passerine, please be really careful. They are still small flowers that are easy to overlook and step on. In Brno's passerine meadow, conservationists have already had to significantly restrict entry, and only the consideration of visitors will prevent a similar scenario in the Malhostovice kiln.
Next to the stone, explore the smaller Drásovský hill. You will find a stone arch, which was created by the collapse of a small cave, as well as several rare species of thermophilic plants and animals. If you're lucky, you might even see a praying mantis.
On the territory of the South Moravian village Mikulčice there is one of the most important archeological sites in the Czech Republic, which is undoubtedly related to the early history of our state. Hradiště belonged to the important fortifications of the settlements of Great Moravia and was one of the important centers of power and spirituality. Near Slovanské hradiště there is also a cycle path along the Morava River and a new bridge has been built there, which leads directly to the Slovak side.
Mutěnice (Mutenitz in German) is a village in the South Moravian Region in the district of Hodonín. They are about 10 kilometers away from the district town of Hodonín, to the northwest.

A visit to the Bukovanský mill is guaranteed to enchant you.
It seems that this year we won't visit the sea, but it does not matter at all, because our country offers a lot of beautiful places for vacation. Today we will take you to the capital of Moravia and look into history. We will talk about Špilberk Castle.
About 30 kilometers northeast of Brno lies a beautiful town of Vyskov through which the River Hana flows. The history of the town dates back to the 12th century. For a long time the town belonged to the Olomouc bishopric, i.e. from the 13th to the 19th century. Today its historic center includes beautiful landmarks which have been gradually returned to their former shine and glory.
Northwest of Brno, a short distance from Tišnov, lies the town of Lomnice in a picturesque valley. The local baroque church of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary attracts visitors from a distance, and the local chateau or the former Jewish quarter and synagogue are also worth seeing. Let's go to Lomnice together.
The second largest city in the Czech Republic is home to many landmarks, nature sights or UNESCO-grade architecture. However, it offers a trip to the realm of animals. And we shall take this trip today.
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!
As was told in the first part, now you know why to go to Brno. You know where to start your exploration of the historical district and where to have lunch. What is next? We are going to spend some moments on Svoboda square. There is a mysterious astronomical clock. We cant avoit a visit to Spilberk castle, Villa Tugendhat (under UNESCO) and a functionalist borough around it. Of course, we are going to have a taste of the night life, great beer or wine, and we are going to see some glimpses of local students ’life. So let’s get started!
The Holedná game reserve is absolutely exceptional, because not only children but also adults have the opportunity to see and admire the life of wildlife with their own eyes, as it is a purpose-built hunting facility used for professional breeding of mouflon and fallow deer on an area of 327 ha. Although the game reserve is thoroughly fenced on all sides so that the animals do not escape, the whole area looks very large and unrestrained.
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.
The picturesque wine town of Dolní Kounice is located about 25 kilometers from Brno on the river Jihlava. The castle and the unique area of the abandoned monastery of Rosa coeli, to which we will now go together, attract visitors.
Near Bystřice nad Pernštejnem on the eastern edge of the Vysočina region, today we will visit the picturesque landscape around the Bobrůvka and Libochovka rivers. Ruins, ponds and majestic rocks await us.
Not far from Pernštejn Castle, along the Svratka River, lies the town of Doubravník. At first glance, you will be fascinated by the majestic Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross and there is plenty to discover in the area. Let's go to Doubravník together now.
It has been a long time since our last visit to the second largest city in the Czech Republic – Brno. This historical “capital” of Moravia is located on the confluence of the Svratka and Svitava rivers. It has been an important center of culture, justice, and education.
