Moravian Cellar in Šatov
The village of Šatov is situated not so far from the Austrian border. It was founded in around 1200 and granted town status by King Vladislav II in 1497. Šatov is famous for its vineyards. Šatov’s landmark is a late Gothic church with Baroque alterrations consecrated to St. Martin.
The town’s environs contain a number of small concrete fortresses once referred to as „little Maginots line“, mute witnesess of the Czechoslovakia’s futile efforts to ward off Hitlerian expansion. Šatov is unspoilt by modern civilisation and offers a special charm. Visit the old „cellar road“ and then enter the restaurant and enjoy a glass of wine and typical Moravian food – cold smoked meat and fabulous Znojmo gherkins - or ask for a menu of international cuisine. Then you can taste more wines directly in the old cellar under the restaurant. The restaurant offers also a great selection of wines for very reasonable prices. This could be a good tip for a typical Moravian souvenir. Upon your request special festivities can be accompanied by a dulcimer band or an accordion player.
