Listen to the Story.

We are looking for a city in the eastern part of the country.

This city is the historic capital of Moravia and was a big trading hub in Middle Ages.

There is a story that Julius Caesar founded the original settlement though it is unlikely he ever set foot there.

Still, the city began as a Roman military camp with the Julius' Hill.

It is a city full of churches including a thousand-year-old cathedral.
