Czech this out!

Family Traveller has teamed up with the beautiful region of South Moravia and Caxton FX to offer you and your family the chance to win a special family holiday with spending money. If you and your kids love discovering new places, the southern Czech Republic region of South Moravia should be high on your list.

Children will be entranced by the fairytale atmosphere of this land, with its beautiful castles and churches, unspoilt forests, meadows, and zigzagging river valleys, all regularly used in fantasy movies. This magical, mystical place feels like stepping back in time.

South Moravia is a paradise for cyclists, and families can hire bikes and head out on well-marked forest routes and side roads, discovering vineyards and country pubs along the way. Sightseeing bike rides with guides are easy to arrange.

Spilberk Castle

For children, there is an abundance of attractions. Špilberk Castle isn’t for the fainthearted, shrouded in gory legends that kids will adore! Or take them on a tour of the labyrinth, a maze of medieval corridors and cellars under the city. Join a dam cruise with free entrance to Gothic royal Veveří Castle, once used as a hunting lodge. To make things even more fun for kids, there’s a sightseeing treasure hunt, where you and your children have to solve clues and use passwords to discover the city sights.

Families can also explore the watermills and windmills, historic blacksmiths and exhibitions of farming machinery and science. Young ones will love the Brno zoological gardens, and VIDA! Science Centrum, where they can launch a hydrogen rocket and star in a TV weather report.
