  • Enjoy a rustic romp through Moravia, the Czech Republic's wilder side

    2011-09-07

    Travelers who choose to explore the Czech Republic may find a nation full of incredible beauty and cultural richness. The region of Moravia has especially stayed true to its roots by providing visitors with an authentic rural experience among its charming villages, wineries and sprawling farmlands.

    According to Frommer's, travelers can sample some homemade wines throughout the region at various locations. Oftentimes, these brews are served straight from the barrel, adding to their authenticity. Becherovka, a special plum spirit, is popular around the villages of Moravia.

    The town of Olomouc boasts a UNESCO World Heritage site, called the Morovy Sloup, or the Trinity Column. According to Fodor's, this landmark survived conflicts of the 17th century and demonstrates the old baroque style which used to be prevalent in the region.

    A few miles outside of Olomouc is the iconic Hrad Bouzov. This castle is sure to delight visitors who take an interest in fortresses and 13th century history. The interior of this fairy-tale like structure hosts period furniture and intricate wooden decorations.
