The Moravian Museum - Pavilion Anthropos
Anthropos Pavilion, situated in a pleasant park in Pisarky near BVV, founded in 1928 by the discoverer of the Moravian Karst underground and Věstonice Venus Karel Absolon, is the Central Europe's largest and richest museum focused on the earliest history of humankind and the formation of culture.
