Why we choose to stay in Břeclav
Most tourists stay in Valtice or Lednice, so everything there is much more expensive. The only cheaper option is Airbnb… So, we decided to stay in Břeclav, where restaurants and hotels are cheaper, and it’s also quieter. The benefit is, you will see how Czech people live in a small city.
It’s also very easy to get to Břeclav. The city is on the international railroads, so you can get there by direct train from Berlin, Vienna, Bratislava or Budapest and, of course, from Prague, Brno and other Czech cities. You can buy the train ticket online at Omio.com.
2. John’s Castle
The next stop is Jan’s castle, translated as John’s Castle. It was built as an artificial ruin and dates from the 19th century. The castle is named after Prince Jan Adam I of Liechtenstein, the first owner of the Lednice estate and was built to live in. It is, therefore, a small hunting lodge. There are plenty of stalls around the castle with snacks. It is a very popular stop for cyclists if you just need a snack and take a short break.
