South Moravian wine
Wineries in South Moravia are among some of the oldest in Europe. Locals know that the best conditions to store wine has nothing to do with the sea and that wine cellars offer the best conditions for making excellent wine. Vineyards, historical reservations, wine basements and narrow roads lined with cellars are not the only attractions that entice tourists - there are wine expos, exhibits and trade fairs, as well. The region is also interwoven with “wine” bike trails that offer the unlikely combination of riding and wine tasting. Bike riding around colourful vineyards and wine basements can really make for an unforgettable experience.
Beer - delicious, golden, vintage
In the Morava-Silesian Region, “štramberské uši” (baked, sweet cones made from cinnamon dough) are not the only soughtafter, gastronomical delicacies among visitors. Other favorites include “frgály” (a cake-like treat made from poppy, berries and cheese in the shape of a pizza) and kielbasa, but beer takes second place to no other delicacy. Ostravar and Radegast are among the most famous brands. Other brands brewed in smaller, local breweries include Excellent in Rýmařov, Avar and Dérer in Hlučín, Lašský Vulkán in Kopřivnice, or beer from Hukvaldy
Museum výroby syrečků Loštice (The Loštice Cheese Museum)
“Olomoucké tvarůžky” (traditional curd cheese associated with Olomouc) is all-natural, spreadable, aged cheese. The “tvarůžky” tradition is over 600 years old and is still made from only natural ingredients. Real “Olomoucké tvarůžky” is the only original Czech cheese. The history of “tvarůžky” production is featured in its own museum which is located right in the factory’s main complex. Visitors to this historical site can quench their thirst from this odoriferous delicacy with Litovel, the local beer brewed in either of the Přerov or Litovel breweries and decide for themselves which is best.
