Mikroregion Mikulovsko


Bavory is a typical wine-growing village. It is situated at the south-western foot of Tabulová hora (Table Hill). Its location offers breathtaking views of agricultural land in the south and west and of southern slopes of Tabulová hora (Table Hill) in the northeast. The village was founded in the 13th century. The first written account of the village comes from 1322. The first settlers, however, appeared here in the Stone Age. Settlement dating back to the Late Bronze Age was discovered north of the village.

On the site where once stood a Gothic building a chapel and later also the Church of St. Catherine dating back to the mid-18th century were built. The church tower was built several years later. Other interesting local sights include the statue of St. John of Nepomuk, wayside shrine at the graveyard and a small chapel standing beside the state road between Mikulov and Brno.

It is very easy to get to Pavlovské Hills from Bavory. There is a green tourist trail leading from the village to the south eastern slope of Tabulová hora (Table Hill) where it joins the red tourist trail. If you wish to go south, walk through Turold Nature Reserve and you get to Mikulov. If you wish to get to the train station in Popice, turn north and walk across Tabulová hora (Table Hill) around Sirotčí hrádek (Orphan´s Castle) through Děvín and Dolní Věstonice.
