Czech Republic - Holešov

I received this postcard in the Slavic countries RR :) It shows the chateau in Holešov.

Holešov is a town in the Zlín Region, Czech Republic. The town is located on the western hillside of the Hostýn Hills - the westernmost part of the Carpathian Mountains.

Holešov is well-known for its mannerist chateau with the garden complex and the unique Jewish synagogue.

The town was inhabited by a large Jewish community before the World War II. Almost whole Jewish community perished in the war.
