See, taste, and enjoy! That's the slogan of the new gastronomy route in the Kopanice region. Come see a region with plentiful fruit and orchards dating back to as early as the 19th century.

Experience the traditions of this region and taste the specialities of its cuisine prepared from local products.

You can choose to wash down your experience with premium-quality spirits from Myjava. Be sure to visit the fruit processing centres and enjoy tasting the delicious local products.

Excellent climate conditions for growing fruits, especially plums, apples, and pears, as well as the attentiveness with which the locals take care of their fruit trees, have predestined the Kopanice region to become a renowned fruit-growing region. In the past, locals used excess fruit to make dried fruit, jam, and brandy, and the pits were pressed for oil.

Through the Kopanice Fruit and Brandy route, you can learn about the values of the inhabitants of the region, passed on from generation to generation with proper pride. Plan a daylong trip to one of the selected establishments (11 in total), which includes a professional tutorial, demonstration of the production processes, and tasting of the following local products: dried fruits, ciders, jams, fruit teas, spirits, and traditional fruit pies.
