Walking trip to (Svatý Kopeček) Holy Hill in Mikulov town and wine tasting were 2 activities we had decided for to celebrate the beginning of the tourist season on April 1. With this date, all main tourist monuments after a long winter open their doors to guests.

And why Holy Hill? I have visited Mikulov town several times as a tourist and as a guide but never had time to walk up to Holy Hill. Since I knew the 1st of April was going to be a sunny day, I saw an opportunity for a nice walking trip to the top of Holy Hill to take these breathtaking pictures of Mikulov town, Pálava limestone ridge and picturesque landscape of the South Moravia and more importantly to get to know place better so I can introduce it to you.
