Itinerary

Day 1: Mikulov
Arrival at Mikulov (easily reached by train from Vienna via Břeclav). Sightseeing around this historical town that is well known for its longstanding connection to wine-making and its Jewish monuments – synagogue and old cemetery.
Overnight in Mikulov.

Day 2: Mikulov – Lednice-Valtice Area – Čejkovice (57 km / 36 miles)
The first day on the cycle route takes you to Valtice with its reknowned Baroque chateau (in its cellars the National Wine Salon serves only the very best wines in the Czech Republic). On to the fairy-tale, Neo-Gothic castle in Lednice with its outstanding park and greenhouse. Finish the day in Čejkovice with accommodation in a hotel situated at Čejkovice Chateau.
Overnight in Čejkovice.

Day 3: Čejkovice – Kyjov (35 km / 22 miles)
Today is one of the less demanding stages. You will travel through the fertile, wine-growing landscape to Milotice. Here you can visit the Baroque chateau and French-style gardens with waterlily ponds and wetland areas. The exhibition of Moravian Baroque sculpture in the chateau orangery is also worth a visit. The last, short part of the route goes straight to Kyjov.
Overnight in Kyjov.

Day 4: Kyjov – Uherské Hradiště (53 km / 33 miles)
The trail goes through the Chřiby Hills and this is one of the more demanding days on your tour, cycling uphill to the Gothic castle at Buchlov, the first stop. Next comes Buchlovice with its impressive Renaissance chateau and the trail leads you further on to the village of Tupesy famed for its ceramic studio. The last stop before Uherské Hradiště is Velehrad, an attractive town with a basilica and monastery.
Overnight in Uherské Hradiště.

Day 5: Uherské Hradiště – Kroměříž (40 km / 25 miles)
The route from Uherské Hradiště goes along the river Morava, through the town of Napajedla with its horse-breeding farm, and on through Otrokovice to the town of Kroměříž. Kroměříž has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its chateau gardens - Podzámecká and Květná. The chateau itself holds a valuable collection of European paintings from the 15th to 18th centuries. The chateau with its beautiful interior and gardens used to serve as the summer residence of the archbishop of Olomouc.
Overnight in Kroměříž.

Day 6: Kroměříž – Vsetín (61 km / 38 miles)
The long route makes this day demanding and you can shorten the trip by 18 km and start in Holešov. Holešov contains many interesting Jewish monuments – a richly decorated synagogue, an exhibition of Jews in Moravia and a valuable cemetery with a ceremonial hall. The cycling to Vsetín is an uphill stage to the upper pass of the Beskydy Mountains. You will be traveling along one of the most interesting parts of the whole route with the amazing landscape and distinctive villages of the Wallachia region.
Overnight in Vsetín.

Day 7: Vsetín – Rožnov pod Radhoštěm (28 km /18 miles)
The last day of your route is short but contains demanding uphill cycling. The first 14 km lead up Ptáčník Hill (830 m) but after that the trail is downhill all the way to Rožnov pod Radhoštěm. Rožnov lies at the foot of the magnificent Radhošť Peak and is known for its outdoor museum of Wallachian architecture. This museum consists of the Wooden Hamlet, Wallachian Village and Mill Valley.
Overnight in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm.

Day 8: Rožnov pod Radhoštěm - Beskydy Mountains
On the last day, you can either visit the outdoor museum of Wallachian architecture or hike up to the Radhošť Peak (1129 m). On your way up, you will pass a wooden effigy of the pagan god and mountain spirit called Radegast, sculptures of Cyril and Methodius and a small wooden chapel. For dedicated cyclists, the ideal program is a ride to Pustevny, a popular village with its collection of wooden structures by the architect Dušan Jurkovič.
