The first president of Czechoslovakia Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk has his roots in south Moravia. He was born in Hodonín and he is surely the most significant citizen of this town. No wonder the only one professional permanent exhibition in the Czech Republic is here. A tour through this exhibition means discover Masaryk’s lifetime from childhood and his studies, political life, up to 1937 when he died. In Hodonín there is also Masaryk’s square with his statue. Masaryk lived for a couple of years in the nearby village Čejč, where you can find 2 memorial tables – the one on the house where he used to live and the other on the school building where he trained to become a blacksmith.
