There aren’t many places in the Czech Republic that can boast such a beautiful and diverse landscape as the Pálava Hills, with their snow-white rocks, springtime mosaic of blooming steppes and vineyards spanning across sun-drenched hillsides.

The South Moravian region of Pálava, which is a part of UNESCO Lower Morava Biosphere Reserve, is undoubtedly one of the places on Earth where you simply feel as if you are in paradise. Visit this beautiful landscape of dazzlingly white rocks, blossoming meadows, lowland forests, romantic ruins of medieval castles, crystal-clear lakes and sun-drenched vineyards. All of this in a region that has one of the warmest climates in the Czech Republic and offers excellent opportunities for hiking, cycling, water sports and dining which you will remember for a long time to come.

In the midst of some stunning countryside strung with vineyards and dotted with white cliffs lies Mikulov in the shade of its own castle. Here you can admire some of the many historic sites the town offers, take a bike ride through the sun-drenched surrounding area or enjoy a glass of superb wine with friends. In short Mikulov is a town you definitely shouldn’t miss on a journey through South Moravia.
