The South Moravian region is one of the most attractive regions in the Czech Republic in terms of tourism. It covers the area of the picturesque Moravian Karst, the UNESCO-listed Valtice-Lednice complex, and its capital is Brno, the second largest Czech city.
South Moravia is an area with a beautiful and diverse landscape. There are karst areas with rocks and numerous caves, including the most famous Punkevni Cave with an underground river, the Katerińska Cave with a rich stalactite garment and the Macocha Abyss.
Farther south are fertile highlands that have been agricultural land for centuries. Here are grown, among others vines, and the wine town of Mikulov and its surroundings is famous for its wine production.
The capital of the region is Brno, a large industrial and university city with many valuable monuments preserved. A hill with the Spilberk fortress rises above the Old Town with beautiful tenements, but the most valuable object of the city is the UNESCO-modernized villa Tugenhat.
Among the monuments of Lower Moravia, the castles and parks in Valtice and Lednice deserve special attention, as well as the palaces in Vranov nad Dyjí, Rajči-Jestřebi, Slavkov pod Brno, as well as the Porta Coeli monastery near Tišnov.
