Trip to an Observation Tower and to Bedřiška Znojemská
This trip seems to be created for an undemanding family expedition. The destination of the trip is the beautiful wooden observation tower Anička which rises on the hill by the village Jiřice u Moravských Budějovic. The observation tower is 11,5 meters high and to get to its top you´ll have to climb up 44 steps. The observation tower lies in the altitude of 390 meters, so it offers a nice view of the surroundings.
On the way to the observation tower you will walk along the marvelous Meditative Stations of the Cross with 14 stations whose author is Bedřiška Znojemská. The observation tower is joined by a recreational site where you can sit for a while, children can play on the playground and moreover you can admire wooden statues of the woodcarving master Pavel Navrkal from nearby Mikulovice.
It wouldn´t be a real trip if you weren´t able to refresh yourself at the end of it J. The part of the gallery is a freshly open coffeehouse with a little wine bar with the peculiar name At Craft. Stop here by all means, the landlord will certainly be glad to talk with you about Bedřiška, Anička and other remarkable things in the surroundings!
