The Moravian Slovakia region is renowned for its colourful folklore traditions; numerous festivals, craft markets, wine tastings and wine festivals. Along the Slovak border you can see the White Carpathian range rising above you; nearby you can visit a UNESCO biosphere reserve with orchid meadows and rare plant and animal species, the Baroque Milotice Chateau, the open-air folk museum in Strážnice, the windmill in Kuželov, and the Slavonic settlement in Mikulčice, one of the Great Moravia centres. If you are searching for unique experiences, try sailing on the Bata Canal and visit wine-growing villages where wine cellars are picturesquely situated at the foothills of the vineyards. Nowhere in the Czech Republic will you find such distinctive places as Nechory in Prušánky, Šidleny in Milotice, Búdy in Mutěnice and Plže in Petrov. Families with children can enjoy the zoological garden in Hodonín and taking a mysterious trip to the Gothic Templar fortress in Čejkovice with accessible historic cellars where you can also sample local wines.
