You do not have to go to the Netherlands to see windmills. Make a trip to the surroundings of Kyjov in the Slovácko region and you will see the largest mill in the Czech Republic.
The mill is an impressive feature dominating over the village of Bukovany and you have a wonderful view of the traditional Slovácko region from there. The Bukovany Mill is a fifteen-metre high lookout tower built in the style of a windmill of the Dutch type. From the viewing platform eleven metres above the ground you can see the surroundings of Kyjov, the White Carpathians and if the weather is good, you can even look as far as the Kobyla Hill near Bratislava. The lookout tower is connected to popular bike trails leading through the wine-growing regions, so visitors can come here on two wheels. Be prepared that your kids might refuse to ever go back home from here.
There is a sales gallery with an exhibition of utility ceramics in the interior of the mill. You can visit an exhibition featuring the history of Bukovany on the second floor. The local atmosphere will take you back to the times of the Czech people’s great-grandmothers. There is a hotel with a restaurant on the premises of the mill, where specialities of traditional Moravian Slovak and Old Czech cuisine are offered and prepared from quality ingredients. Like manna from heaven! Accompany a good meal by choosing from a fine selection of Moravian wines.
You can also try other pleasant activities: minigolf, archery or walking along a massage path which brings relief to tired feet. And that is not all. Kids will look forward to riding ponies and to a free range with friendly goats.
The whole premises are built in the traditional style of Moravian Slovakia with stylish rustic interiors and unique atmosphere. The place regularly hosts social and cultural events. Will you visit any of them?
