Pálava

Pálava

To this day, Palava is guarded by the ancient mysteries of mammoth hunters, Celts and the forgotten fate of the soldiers of the 10th Roman Legion, who, according to legend, began to grow vines here.

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 fact that the local land was loved long time ago is evidenced by the remains of fireplaces, mammoth bones’ stores and, above all, the world-famous ceramic statuette of Venus of Věstonice.

The ruins of the gothic royal castle Děvičky (Girls´ castle) from the 13th century are one of the dominant landmarks of the Pálava Hills. The castle is located west of the village of Pavlov on a steep, inaccessible rock on three sides, about 1 km from the highest peak of Pálava, Děvín. You can also visit the ruins of the Orphan’s castle (Sirotčí hrad) which date from the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries, whose silhouette belongs inherently to the Palava Hills as Romeo does to Juliet. Whether you pass through the area or admire the beauty of this wine-scented region, the Orphan Castle will peek at you from everywhere.
