The town of Čejkovice lies in South Moravia, 40 km south-east of Brno and 15 km north-west of Hodonín, at an altitude of 205 metres above sea level. The interesting places around Čejkovice include “Špidláky” which has been a protected landscape area since the beginning of the nineteen nineties. It is famous for its diversity of rare and protected plant species. In May 2004, the Hovorany–Čejkovice bird reserve was declared a Natura 2000 protected nature reserve.
Čejkovice is a town with a rich history and cultural traditions. After the Chateau, its most famous sights include the well-preserved 650-metre-long Templar Cellars, the Church of Saint Kunhuta, and the house in which Tomáš Masaryk, later to become the first president of the Czechoslovak Republic, lived with his parents in the years 1856–1862. It is the only historical house in the area preserved in its original form. It was renovated in 1990 and now serves as a museum.
