Presentation: South Moravian Region

  • Embassy of the Czech Republic 3900 Spring of Freedom Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

The Embassy of the Czech Republic will host a unique presentation on the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic on October 17, at 6 pm. Gregor Mendel spent most of his life, studying and conducting his pea experiments on the Laws of Inheritance in the charming and fertile wine region of Southern Moravia. To this day, this area is dotted with romantic villages, majestic castles, and UNESCO Heritage sites; yet, it is also booming with progress and prominent universities and research institutes on the verge of the world’s next great scientific discovery. Hear, see, and taste the region via a talk, photos, song and, of course, wine.
