Property in Moravia (East Czech Republic)

Moravia takes its name from the Morava River and occupies most of the eastern third of the Czech Republic. In the north it borders Poland, in the east Slovakia, in the south Austria and to the west, Bohemia.

Investment in this region is ongoing with a focus on places like Brno, the Czech Republic’s second largest city and economic centre of the Moravian region. Brno and its surrounding region has seen rapid and sustained economic growth in recent years, averaging more than 9% a year for the past decade. Currently, property prices are approximately one third of those in Prague, with a strong growing demand for rental and quality properties.

The main economic centres of this eastern part of the Czech Republic are Brno, Olomouc and Ostrava. Brno also has some excellent museums and the Villa Tugendhat. Olomouc was an important centre of the Great Moravian Empire in the 9th and early 10th century. At a later period it was the capital of the province of Moravia. Despite its considerable charms, Olomouc hasn't been discovered by tourists in the same way as Prague and the spa cities. For history buffs, Olomouc’s inner city is known to have the second largest historical monuments preserved in the country, after Prague. Olomouc is also a good base for several excellent daytrips including UNESCO-listed Kromerí, and the Caves of the Moravian Karst.

Moravia is noted for its viticulture, particularly around the River Danube in the south. With 94% of the Czech Republic's vineyards, Moravia is at the centre of the country's wine industry. The areas around the four towns of Velké Pavlovice, Mikulov, Znojmo and Slovácko provide more than 90% of the Czech Republic's total wine-producing acreage. Mikulov is a picturesque town close to the Austrian border and the UNESCO-listed Lednice-Valtice area.

South-west Moravia is home to beautiful historic towns and several world-heritage-listed monuments. Telc is a pretty town with an extraordinarily preserved renaissance main square. Trebíc is also world heritage listed because of its Jewish history and St Procopius basilica.

Eastern Moravia has the Beskydy mountains and the culturally unique region of Wallachia, famous for its wooden architecture and unique cakes and pastries.
