1 THE PUNKVA CAVE and MACOCHA ABYSS - uncluding a visit to the Pernstejn Castle - a full day trip
EUR 195 / per person or EUR 150 / per 2 and more persons
This is a very popular one day trip from Brno which combines a bit of architecture in a small village Křtiny with a beautiful Baroque church. The village sits on the boundary of the Moravian Karst nature reserve. It's a tiny, tiny village with a HUGE Baroque church. It's actually shocking when you drive into the village and see this gigantic Baroque pilgrimage site, The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and other buildings that make up this Premonstratensian monastery, positively dominating the landscape. You immediately know why its referred to as the "pearl of Moravia". There is also an ossuary below the church with twelve skulls with the letter "T" painted on them. We also do a bit of easy hiking in the Moravian Karst full of caves, visit the Macocha abyss, the Punkva Cave, (OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND, watch a short VIDEO here) visit the Pernstejn castle (video). The PERNSTEJN Castle is a popular castle with a 60 minute guided tour. I will send you the AUDIO file with the narration in English. There are thousands of castles in the Czech Republic, but this one is a MUST. You will enjoy a 45 minute drive to the castle through the Czech Moravian Highlands dotted with cozy villages and we stop at a covered bridge from 1718. I have been to this trip so many times with my clients or friends but never got bored. At lunch time we usually stop at popular restaurant which serves Czech and Moravian local traditional dishes and in fall serves venison and game.
Note: The Pernstejn Castle is closed from November to May.
Then I will drive via Czech - Moravian Highlands (about 50 minutes) to the Pernstejn Castle. Before we enter the castle we will have lunch where I usually order for the guests some typical Czech dishes - goulash, pork, snitzchel, accompanied by the local beer.
Duration: full day trip

My in-laws were visiting us in Prague, and after three days fighting our way through packs of tourists we decided to take a day off and head to Brno to spend a day with Helena. This was probably the best decision we made during our week together!The tour was nice an casual, but very informative. It was nice to have a tour guide, yet not feel as if you're part of a large tourist group. Helena picked us up at the train station in Brno and we spent the day in the beautiful area surrounding Brno. So beautiful and calm, especially after the chaotic Prague! We visited the Macocha abys and the Punkva Cave which was absolutely stunning! Definitely a must-see in the region. It can be a very busy place, and they're strict about timing with tickets and entry, so if you don't know what you're doing you risk wasting lots of time. Helena made it so easy and stress-free. After the Macocha cave and a great Czech meal for lunch in a quaint little village, we took a tour of the Pernstejn Castle which was the best castle I've ever seen. The setting was amazing, and the current state of the castle really made it feel genuine and enabled the mind to wander back into history. Again, tourist information is not readily available like it is in Prague, so having Helena around saved us a lot of stress. I'm not confident we would have been able to see both of these places in one day if it weren't for her services.Helena's English is very good and she is very knowledgeable about the country's history as well as its current affairs. She shared lots of anecdotal information, as she's seen the country and the region go through a lot.I would recommend Helena's service to anyone visiting the Czech Republic. Prague is great, but it is not even close to everything this wonderful country has to offer. Visit Brno and the surrounding area of a taste of the real Czech Republic!
Thank you Helena! From Mike email@example.com
From 8 very satisfied Norwegians, thanks Helena. Our daytour to Punkvevní jeskyně (Punkva Caves), the tasty wild pig lunch in Lipuvka and the visit to Cerna Hora Brewery was great. Your personality and your knowledge made our day complete. firstname.lastname@example.org
