The workshop will be held in Mikulov. Mikulov (Czech pronunciation: ['mikulof]; German: Nikolsburg) is a town in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic with a population of 7,608. It is located directly on the border with Lower Austria. Mikulov is located at the edge of a hilly area and a large lake. It extends from a sea level of 200 to 250m. Pálava Landscape Protected Area begins at Mikulov.
The town of Mikulov is characterized by its panorama of a Baroque chateau, the Renaissance spire of the Church of St. Wenceslas and the Holy Hill on the foothills of Pavlovské vrchy. It boasts a lot of significant religious sights. Mikulov was famous for its religious tolerance. From the 16th till the 19th century it housed the seat of the rabbinate. The large Jewish ghetto, along with the Upper Synagogue and the Jewish cemetery from the 15th century, are worth mentioning.
Thanks to the location and climate, wine growing and trade flourished here. Mikulov has become especially popular for its viticulture. A network of biking trails crisscrosses the area, and there are annual wine festivals every autumn.
