Info: Tlumačov is located in the flat scenery of the southern part of the Haná Region, on the central reaches of the River Morava. Bishop Jindřich Zdík included the location in the list (dating from 1141) of farmsteads belonging to the church. Connected to the Vienna-Cracow railway line in the early 1840s, Tlumačov grew in importance. The local 14th century St Martin`s Church has preserved Gothic frescos; the parsonage with a courtyard dates from 1759. A nearby small chapel supplements the church complex. In the 1700s, the small town acquired some smaller architectural elements in the form of statues (depicting the Holy Trinity and St John Nepomuk) and crosses. The Mansion, originally a Renaissance structure, currently serves for catering purposes. The surrounding scenery offers an opportunity to get to know the area`s unique flora and fauna, in particular, the habitats of waterfowl, including the Tlumačovská Pool, the Kurovický Quarry, the Záhlinické Fishponds and Skalka. A cycling trail connects Tlumačov with Zlín, Kroměříž and Hostýn Hills. Of the local cultural events the most noteworthy is the Day of Haná folklore festival, held in June. Acting in cooperation with the Historical Association, the village has brought to life the Tlumačov folk costumes as part of efforts to revive folk traditions. Sports activities enjoy great popularity in Tlumačov as is attested to by the local vaulting club (gymnastic exercises over a horse), which has scored some international successes."
