Trip tips

Uherský Brod is a beautiful, historic town located in the foothills of the highest mountain of the White Carpathians, Javořina. The town is also known as a royal town, thanks to its elevation by Přemysl Otakar II, who granted the town this title in the 13th century. An important historical fact, however, is that Jan Amos Komenský, nicknamed the teacher of nations, worked here. Not only was he supposedly born in Uherský Brod, but there is also a local museum dedicated to him.
