Admire The Slovacko Wine Region
The Slovacko wine region lies in the southeast corner of the Czech Republic, bordering Slovakia and Austria. The name of the wine region is derived from “Slovakia” as it lies on its borders and shares similar customs and accents. This is the region where folklore, festivities, traditions, and even local folk costumes are still alive and cherished.

Velehrad is one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Moravia. Its history started more than 800 years ago. The first twelve Cistercian monks came to the valley of stream Salaška to build up their convent not far from village Veligrad (today it is Staré Město).
Stop to small-town Blatnice where you can find the Christian complex with a view to wine cellars.
Visit the open-air museum in Strážnice. You will experience the authentic atmosphere of a Moravian village in the 19th century, in which it was usual to dress up in richly embroidered folk costumes. You will also find an exhibition here of technical buildings, meadow farming, and viniculture with a real vineyard, historical pressing plant, and wine cellars. You will thus discover what the whole process of cultivating grapes entailed.
Visit the Blueprint Workshop (special clothing material inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List).
One of the most beautiful gems of traditional folk architecture in the South Moravian Region is located near Strážnice in the direction of Hodonín. On the slope above the village of Petrov, there’s a place called Plže which consists of about eighty wine cellars. Since the 15th century, the buildings and vineyards were built continuously at the same time. The references can be found in historical documents from the 16th and 17th centuries. The local inhabitants not only stored wine in the buildings, but they hid there during the war events.
You will find a collection of unique baroque cellars. In one of them a break with tasting and an interesting conversation of a winemaker.
