Czech Republic: Moravian Folklore

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Czech Republic, Arts & Culture, Food, History, Music, Travel

Bored in Brno posts a report [1] from the 49th “annual celebration of local music and folklore in the town of Velka nad Velickou in South Moravia”: “Being a Czech festival, the beer flows liberally. Despite the higher elevation, the region can still sustain some grape cultivation and there is a culture of wine making, though it is not as strong as in other areas of south Moravia. There is no shortage, as well, of liquors distilled from plums (slivovice), apricots, peaches, pears, walnuts, and herbs.”
