I was on the action "Day of open wine tavern" in a small village on the south of Moravia yesterday. It was open 51 wine tavern from 620, which are on the hill, where vineyards are. I smacked all day :)

I love the buildings with painted decorations -- it always looks so festive and happy. And it's interesting to see in pictures 4 and 5 that the language of coffee is universal: latte, cappuccino, espresso -- fancy coffee drinks are everywhere now!

My grandparents came from Slovakia; I inherited some beautiful linens and shawls with that same kind of flower patterns on them.

Thanks for sharing your pictures, it looks like a fun day for you!

The village names Mutěnice and Slovakia is only twelve kilometres from its. I like slovak mountains and I and my wife went there each year. Were you in Slovakia sometimes ? And some pictures from slovak mountains.

It looks beautiful there! Unfortunately, I've never been able to travel to Slovakia :(. My grandparents emigrated to the US in the early 1900s. They were originally from Bratislava. They lost touch with the last cousins they had left in Slovakia after World War II. Thank you for sharing your pictures!

It is raining three days. I can not go to the garden, wherefore I went by tram to the city. I looked up (first time in my life) Museum of J.G.Mendel, one of the founder genetics. It was very important. I went photograph by my Nokia mobile, but the photos in museum do not happened (the worse). Two photos out of museum only and two refers to web sites.

I love Alfons Mucha and have his art on cards - didn't know he was Czech.

I love play-bills of Alfons Mucha too. I have some replicas of his play-bills, but originals exhibited on that presentation (high 2,5 m), it is something another. Alfons Mucha created more of his play-bills in Paris and in USA in 1897- 1910. He was born in the town Ivančice near of Brno (1860), after 1910 year he lived in Bohemia until 1939 y.
