Mikulov (12 km) – You could hardly find a town with a nicer location than Mikulov, situated on the last tip of Pálava and surrounded by vineyards. Truly, it is the vineyards that will tell you that you are in the center of the Mikulov wine-growing sub-region and you can meet with wine literally at every step – in the picturesque historic streets and in the castle.
The dominant feature of Mikulov is the Baroque castle / chateau, where you will discover the largest domestic exposition of winemaking and wine culture with a unique giant wine barrel. When the plague epidemic finally retreated in 1622, Cardinal Dietrichstein had a chapel of St. Sebastian built there on the Tanzberg hill in thanksgiving. The place has since been called the Holy Hill and from the town can be seen early Baroque Stations of the Cross with passion chapels. The tomb of Dietrichstein can be found in the former church of St. Anna on the main square of Mikulov.
A visit to the Mikulov region cannot be done without wine, so a number of wine cellars, hotels and wine bars invite you to sit. When wandering around you should not miss the cave at Turold, which has an underground lake with emerald coloured water.
We cordially invite you to the Lednicko-Valtický Apartment, which is located in the South Moravian wine village of Hlohovec, in the middle of the Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape, whose monuments are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. You can stay in our Lednicko-Valtický apartment, enjoy relaxing cycling in this flat beautiful countryside and sip the best wine from the vineyards around the protected landscape area of Pálava.
