Rural South Moravia Photo Tour

If you are fond of wine tasting, South Moravia is exactly where you need to be – it has a quaint charm as you can see from the vineyards and rolling hills. There are ample opportunities for amazing photography in the countryside. For instance, you can get some excellent shots of beautiful yellow rapeseed fields. I also arrange for you to see the wonderfully painted wine cellars, where you can taste local wine and gorge on delicious meals. The Lednice-Valtice area, also known as the pearl of South Moravia, is indeed spectacular – the lovely castle is located on the right bank of the river Dyje in the English Tudor Gothic style. In fact, you get a glimpse of both French and English architecture here.
