With its area of historical preservation, Jewish quarter and Baroque chateau with the largest exhibition of wine-making in the Czech Republic, Mikulov is referred to as the town of sights. No wonder. You will be convinced by the Gothic-Renaissance church of St. Wenceslas with an ossuary or by the old burghers’ Renaissance houses on the picturesque square.
The Dietrichstein Tomb, the Holy Trinity Column and the Jewish Quarter with many valuable houses and a synagogue are also remarkable. You can see more than 4,000 tombstones at the Jewish cemetery, which is one of the largest in the Czech Republic!
And you definitely must climb the Holy Hill. This is a nature preservation area and also a famous place of pilgrimage. The view which you will get at the end of your climb, after you burn a few calories, is worth it! Standing at the top of the hill is St. Sebastian’s Church with early Baroque decorations.
Mikulov and its surroundings is a feast for all the senses. Rich history imprinted in architectural sights, beautiful nature all around and delicious wine (also all around) means a fine destination for a brief outing or a whole holiday spent in both an active and relaxing way at the same time.
The town is alive with a rich cultural program for 12 months a year – when you come to Mikulov, find out what is going on by visiting the town’s website.
