"Nice place you have here. A church, I see... or a castle... or whatever." An awkward first conversation between Honza (Kryštof Hádek) and Klárka (Tereza Voříšková). What is there to say about beautiful Moravian countryside when you have the greatest beauty standing right next to you?
It certainly is no church; it's a castle with a museum. No matter which direction you approach Mikulov from, you'll always be welcomed by this town's dominant feature. The exact same view you see in the film Grapes, though, is available from the road Dukelská, leading from the village Klentice.
The museum offers various exhibitions, mostly on wine and history. Winemaking was first introduced here by the Romans, but what will attract your attention the most is the giant barrel from the 17th century. The locals take great pride in it, and no wonder, as it can contain up to 100 000 litres.
Mikulov is a peaceful town, so peaceful that a truce was agreed upon here, twice even - the first one after the Battle of Austerlitz, and the second in the Austro-Prussian War in the second half of the 19th century. Here, you are welcome to find your inner peace as well.
