Mikulov

This originally serfdom town arose near the land castle in the southwest area of the Pavlovske vrchy highland. The preserved cannon tower in Kozi hradek reminds of a former town fortification. The castle was re-built as a luxurious baroque chateau. This chateau along with the Renaissance tower of St. Vaclav´s Church and the chapel on the hill of Svaty kopecek create dominant features the town panorama.

It was mainly viticulture and trade, which flourished here due to the advantageous location and climate conditions of the town. Mikulov was celebrated for its religious tolerance, such as towards "Baptists" or to Jews. The town of Mikulov was a residence of the land rabbinate in the period from 17th till 19th century. The large Jewish ghetto along with a synagogue and a Jewish cemetery are worth to mention. Also the Lorety Church, which was modified as a Dietrichstein family tomb in the 19th century, ranks among a number of sights. At present, Mikulov is well known especially as a town of vine.
