For centuries Kyjov has been associated with folklore and traditions. You can find plenty of evidence of this in the museum exhibitions of the Kyjov town and in the surrounding villages and towns. Feast festivities are regularly held in towns and villages of this region. The Ride of the Kings is an event listed as a UNESCO World Heritage. The most important event of this type in the Kyjov region is called “Slovácký rok” and it takes place once every 4 years. More than 2,000 costumed participants come to the royal city to present their art and traditions in a full-weekend program for tens of thousands of visitors.
South Moravia and wine are inseparable and this is no different in Kyjov. Everywhere you look, you will come across wine cellars or the vineyards themselves. Wine tourism is just flourishing here and where else to taste wine than at the source. Throughout the year a large number of wine tastings and wine competitions take place in the area. You can visit any of them and taste the best from our local winemakers. We will be very happy to recommend local winemakers and notable events to visit.
