Zlín Region: Folk Extravaganza!
Gear up for a wild ride packed with fiery dancing, melodies and the swirling skirts of brightly coloured folk costumes! Enter the vibrant and colourful world of the Zlín Region, where tradition and folklore are still very much alive!

There’s no other place in Czechia where folk traditions are such an essential part of life as in the Zlín Region. This charming part of the Czech Republic is a centre of picturesque folk architecture, stunning folk events, traditions and customs, which are so unique they are even listed as UNESCO Cultural Heritage.

Nowhere else in Europe will you find a bigger or older folk festival than the one in Strážnice. No other open-air museum in Central Europe is as a big as the one in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm. There’s no other place in the world where the king is a young lad in women’s clothes… The traditions of the Zlín Region are something you really have to experience for yourself!

Enter the world of Czech folk traditions and folk architecture!
