Spots left: 3


The South Moravian Region (Jihomoravský kraj) is located in the southeast of the Czech Republic. South Moravia is a small paradise in the center of Europe, a picturesque region on the border with Austria and Slovakia. The second, unofficial, name of the region is “Czech Tuscany”, because of the smooth lines of fields reminding the hills of Tuscany and the foothills of the Austrian Alps. Almost all the land in that area is sown with agricultural crops: rapeseed, corn, wheat. As you know, the fields should rest, and the same wheat is sown on different sites at different times. Therefore, every year in the same place you can make unique footage. Moravia – a wine region, in addition to fields with lands, the photographers are waiting for the extensive areas of the rows of vineyards which are especially interesting for shooting in autumn because of colours.
Imagine the wavy meadows and rows of vineyards of South Moravia, colorful and even-defined fields, neat little houses and ancient gardens and castles, picturesque hills, rises and rocky terrain of the White Carpathians and Pálava. This trip is for you if you are interested in taking pictures of amazing landscapes and mysterious places where crowds of tourists do not go.
