Slivovitz (also known as plum brandy or plum spirit) is an alcoholic beverage that has been distilled especially in Central and Eastern Europe for centuries, namely in countries such as Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Slovakia, and of course, the Czech Republic. This beverage is so typical and characteristic for both Bohemia and Moravia that it can, in all seriousness, be called a national beverage and is rightly cherished by the locals as well as being a big part of the local culture (mainly traditional songs and proverbs as well as modern-day TV shows and movies). It is also heavily portrayed in Moravian traditions and customs.
The R. JELÍNEK Slivovitz Museum offers you a unique chance to discover the story of this one-of-a-kind beverage. You can look forward to compelling educational screenings, real exhibits, and an exclusive hyper-modern 5D VR experience that will educate you about everything you would like to know about Slivovitz.
