The village of Dolní Dunajovice, where the PRAHA Restaurant is situated, lies 40 km south of the city of Brno, in a valley, which is bordered by Pálava – a South Moravian dominant – in the east. The ridges of the Dunajovské hills, under which extensive vineyards and wine cellars are set, extend to the west.
The history of the region dates back to the 6th century, as evidenced by the rich archaeological finds in the village.
The village retained its agricultural character; it is closely tied with wine-making because the local climatic conditions as well as the suitable soil composition make it possible to grow vines of very good quality, and that is why it is sought after by lovers of this noble drink.
The village of Dolní Dunajovice offers visitors many services – there is a health centre, dentist, post office, shopping centre, grocery stores with a confectioner’s shop. A noteworthy fact is that Dr. Karl Renner was born here. He studied in nearby Mikulov and became Austria’s first president in 1945.
In 1990, a memorial plaque was unveiled at his native house.
Good transport service is provided mainly by the Brno – Mikulov bus route along a motorway-type road. The trip takes only about 25 minutes.
The village has been gaining in popularity with tourists, who can stay in many bed and breakfasts. From here, they can then plan hiking or biking trips. Very good cycling trails have been built for cyclists in the area.
