CZ, Rymice – A Historic Village
11 kilometers from Holesov, there is the village of Rymice with lures such as folk architecture.
This time we visit not a town but a hamlet of about 600 people. We found it charming right away. It is a place of peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. St Bartholomew church is rising to the sky and right next to it is a large stone cross. Be sure to go there. The sacral landmark is not the only landmark there. Apart from that, there is a house which is a prime example of folk architecture and now is part of "modern" residential area. Truly unique combination.
If you choose to take a walk there are several such buildings. Moreover, there is a chapel, Jan Nepomucky statue, or a 14th century stronghold where one of the first Moravian sugar factory operated later. Today, the stronghold hosues a museum focused on the history of the hamlet. In addition, there is a wind mill exhibition or an exhibition on people of Hana region. Keep in mind that the exhibitions are opened only during season.
Once we noticed history, the very first written evidence of the hamlet comes from the year 1353. Rymice had many owners. Albrecht of Valdstejn was among its most famous. The Jesuits of Olomouc owned the settlement for a while as well. However,, the mot intereting part of Rymice´s history is still alive as demonstrated on the examples of how people have lived and farmed in this part of Moravia for the last two centuries.
There is quite non-traditional open air museum. It consists of folk houses dotting the entire village. The greatest concentration of these are at open air exhibition of Kromeriz Regional Museum. It is a great oportunity to dive into historic atmosphere and see how people used to live in a village in Hana region. There are seven folk architecture structures and they are situated on their original place of construction. These structures are timbered cabins with clay facade and thatch roofe. Inside, there is traditional equipment. What you can see is a smithery, a horse saggle workshop, or a wind mill. The latter was transpored here from Borenovice, a village nearby.
This German-style wind mill has branches which could have been adjusted according to the direction in which wind blows. It is situated on a field. At the mill you can enjoy beautiful views over the surroundings.
During the time we were there, a new nature trail on beekeeping and bees in Rymice was installed. It added some color to our trek. In case you like folk architecture placed in beautiful landscape, Rymice is the right place to be.

Kvetna Garden is our last stop in Kromeriz. The garden is true gem of architecture even on global scale.
Last week, we concluded our article on Kromeriz at Podzamecka garden which is listed as a World Heritage Site of UNESCO. It is amazing nature gem of this picturesque city.
During our walks in Kromeriz we reached Archbishopric chateau on Snemovni sqaure. We follow up on our last week's walk and explore more of beautiful places in this city. Before entering the cahteau, we visit the Mlynska gate which is a part of city's fortification.
Today we make our first walk i Kromeriz. We will look at the most amazing gems of its architecture, see its marvelous squares, and picturesque streets.
In our new mini series we introduce you to Kromeriz, a town of beautiful streets, squares, sacral constructions, amazing gardens, and UNSECO sights. We will roam in one of the most beautiful places in the Czech Republic. Its amazing history, culture, and knowledge is why it is called Athens of Hana.
Upon seeing Dolni and Zerotinovo squares, we walked down several streets and found ourselves on Horni square again. Church of St Moritz is located near to it.
Last week we started with our tour around Olomouc. We briefly told you about its history. The point of start was Horni square. The Holy Trinity column, and the town hall with a tower belong to its main landmarks.
Place of pilgrimage have some sort of indescribable atmosphere and it lures thousands to visit this place. Not long ago we enjoyed the beauty of Svaty Hostyn. This place has magic. Perhaps this is the reason for our later decision to visit yet another important site of pilgrimage in the Czech Republic - Svaty Kopecek.
After visiting the pilgrimage place Holy Hostýn we could not miss even three kilometers remote sites town Bystřice pod Hostýnem, which is famous for the production bentwood furniture. Of course the furniture is far from everything this town has to offer.
On the western edge of the Hostyn Hills, in Kromeriz district, there is a small town of Holesov. The town is known for its early Baroque chateau and its grandiose French style park as well as for its well-known jewish community in the past.
Today we will roam around in Moravia, the region of Olomouc. We visit the city of Prerov, a great place for holidaymakers and also an imporant city in the region which is only 20 kilometers from Olomouc.
The Moravian Gate geomorphological unit has many interesting nooks in nature as well as interesting towns one of which Hranice is. This town is 23 kilometers awy from Prerov. Since the Prehistory it has been an important crossroad of various roads. History and modernity are both present in this town.
Not a long time ago we enjoyed the town of Hranice. Several hours of walk later we moved on. Again, we parked our in Teplice nad Becvou, one of the most important spa areas in the Czech Republic.
There is beautiful historical town of Znojmo near the border with Austria on the south of Moravia. It became famous for its wine and cucumbers. Only few know that you can find here, for instance, the relic of St Bonifac, many Middle-Ages landmarks, and that popular TEDx conferences take place there. Let's see Znojmo throughour article and the lense of our videocamera.
