His city has been welcoming visitors nearly a visible panorama of tall towers of the Church of the Holy Trinity and the massive buildings of the castle. A vibrant business sector in the town reveal ancient privileges allowing regularly held annual fairs and weekly and once-famous cattle markets. Today's appearance is just a reflection of Drnholec former glory estate, which was during its heyday Tauffenbachů associated with the family. The once prosperous village exhibition and the cruel fate played several times in previous centuries, but the hardest blow came in 1945 and the township is still not recovered from it. In the spring of that memorable year saw one of the fiercest fighting at the end of World War II in South Moravia. Tens, but rather hundreds of homes were completely destroyed, a large part of the building was seriously damaged. Most German-speaking population of the village had to move to their places came not only from novousedlíci all around Moravia, but also people from many parts of Europe.
