Hillfort Mikulčice

The Slavic hillfort in Mikulčice is undoubtedly one of the most important places related to the early history of our state. It was one of the most impressive fortified settlements of Great Moravia. In its time, the Mikulčice hillfort was a water castle, which was surrounded by the rugged arms of the Morava River.

A unique Great Moravian monument of the early Middle Ages from the 9th century. You will admire the original fortifications of the vast acropolis, the remains of stone church buildings and the palace, formerly a water castle, probably the residence of the Grand Duke himself and his family. The site is now protected as a national cultural monument.  The many archaeological finds from this site give us a general idea of the culture of Great Moravia and the material and spiritual life of the Slavs in our territory.
