The cycling race builds on the rich history of the 1970s – 1980s, when the entire Czechoslovak top cyclists rode to Hlohovec for the spring nomination races at the Peace Race.
In 2011, thanks to the support of councillors from Hlohovec, locals and especially sponsors, this special tradition was restored and once again Hlohovec has become the “opener” of the cycling season, the first spring race in Bohemia and Moravia. It is not only a top sports event, but also a cultural and social event.
Experience the unique food festival in the city, which boasts the largest almond orchard in Central Europe. Take a look at the flowering almond trees and taste the most original almond treats from the masters in their field!
South Moravia belongs to wine and wine to South Moravia and of course Hlohovec is no exception. Traditionally, local winemakers organize an exhibition of delicious beverages. A particular and traditional kind of music called “Cimbál” is played during the wine tasting event, which is regularly held on Easter Sunday at the local culture house (community centre).
