Tourist Season

The spring tourist season starts in April when the awaking nature is the biggest magnet. Within the main summer tourist season from June to September you can visit sights, take part in local cultural events or engage in water sports. The autumn season lasts by November and is mainly preferred by groups that like to enjoy wine or new wine in a wine cellar after the sightseeing tour. The winter season is from December to March, when participants in various seminars, congresses, cultural events and, of course, lovers of wine come to the lowlands of Slovácko as well as ski fans heading to Bílé Karpaty (White Carpathians) and Chřiby (Chřiby Hills).

Do You Travel With Animals?

If you visit Slovácko with your pet, you should know that you might not always find accommodation with it in every hotel or boarding house. We recommend consulting the issue with the owner in advance. Animals may not often enter sightseeing objects either. In public places and in the means of transport, your dog must have a protective muzzle and it must be kept on the lead, of course.

Tip

It is a good habit to leave so-called tip while paying to the staff in the restaurant. It is a reward for being satisfied with their services. Its amount is not fixed; the paid amount is usually rounded up to whole tens of crowns.
