Everything is supervised by the majestic Mikulov Chateau, which stands on a steep rock reef. At present there is a permanent exhibition of the Regional Museum devoted to winery, so typical for this area. Every year, the International Guitar Festival takes place in the chateau complex, during which the city resonates with melodies of instruments from around the world.
If you want to see the city from the bird's eye view, go to Kozí hrádek, which previously protected the strategic routes between Brno and Vienna. Its late Gothic fortification with a blade is still preserved. On the top you will enjoy a unique view of the whole city. The most beautiful is it at sunset!
