Mutual Inspirations Festival 2017 - Gregor Mendel


Hyncice

Hyncice

The village of Hyncice in the region of Silesia in the Czech Republic is the birthplace of the father of genetics, Gregor Johann Mendel. He was born there on a farmstead on July 20, 1822. In 1965, a memorial to this world renowned genius was unveiled in the house of his birth. In 2007, a museum dedicated to Mendel was opened after the reconstruction of the farm. Its purpose is to acquaint visitors with the region and its exhibition focuses on Mendel's life's journey. In addition to touring the museum, guests are welcome to stay in the hostel, which serves as a base for cycling around the picturesque region and is a popular location for wedding ceremonies and receptions. Moreover, many seminars and training camps, especially for children and young adults, are held there as well.
