Hustopeče – Heart of Wine and Almonds

This weekend is the annual almond festival in the town of Hustopeče, not far from Brno, in the South Moravian wine region.

Hustopeče is home to the only almond orchard in central Europe, it is unusual as almonds like the warmer and drier regions of southern Europe.

Many people come from all around the country to see the almond trees in bloom and sample many of the almond based delicacies on offer. Many restaurants in the town serve dishes with almonds in the mix during this time.

Here’s a few photos I took of the event this year:
