Affordable New Hot Spots

Found this article from Travel and Leisure

Why Go Now: This under-the-radar province is emerging as Eastern Europe’s newest wine region. Ninety-four percent of the Czech Republic’s burgeoning wine production (Grüner Veltliner and Cabernet Moravia) comes from its rolling vineyards and castle-topped towns. The regional capital, Brno, in the center of Moravia, is dotted with Modernist houses designed by Adolf Loos and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (the creator of the famous Brno chair) and is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the area.

The Details: Stay at the new nautical-themed Noem Arch Hotel (doubles from $141), with 18 cabin-like rooms and a blue-walled restaurant that blends harmoniously with the glass aquariums. Farther south, in Mikulov, the village's Jewish heritage is the inspiration for artist Sylva Chludilova’s paintings at Galerie Efram. In neighboring Valtice, sample an extensive wine selection at Narodni Salon Vin, in the town château.

How do you get to Mikulov and Valtice from Brno? We do not have a car and are a family with 2 preschoolers. Our base will be in Brno for about 10 days.

To Mikulov -There are so many ways, you should check it with the website.

the best seems a bus from Brno,,Autobusové nádraží dep. 7:19am (bus route 741000 2 ) Mikulov,,u parku 8:05 am

I think the train goes to Sakvice, (some trains through Breclav, then a bus or another train Not far, about an hour.

Or you can take a bus only. (From ÚAN Zvonařka - bus stn. Brno)

To Valtice - train from Mikulov.

Mikulov na Moravě 13:01 Os 4513 (Train No.)

Valtice město 13:14

From Brno - I think you need to change in Breclav...
