Photographer's Note

Mikulov is a town in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic. It is located directly on the border with Lower Austria. Mikulov is located at the edge of a hilly area and the three Nové Mlýny reservoirs. Pálava Landscape Protected Area begins in Mikulov, and so does the Moravian Karst.

St. Anne´s Church with imitation of the Holy Cottage of the Italian Loretta was built in the course of the years 1623-1656 in the bottom part of the Mikulov square. On the south-western side of the church there is the funeral chapel of the Dietrichstein family. In early 18th century the church received its two-tower front designed by J. B. Fischer of Erlach. The whole building was greatly damaged by the destructive fire in 1784 and only in mid 19th century the church was reconstructed to become a family sepulchre of the Dietrichsteins and the remains of the members of the family of 1617 – 1852 were moved there from the existing temporary sanctuary under St. Venceslas´ Church.
