THE BIRTHPLACE OF JOHANN GREGOR MENDEL in the village of Vražné

Johann Gregor Mendel – the father of genetics was born on 20. 7. 1822 on his parents (Anton and Rosina Mendel) farmstead in Hynčice, Silesia. He was christened a Catholic two days later in the Church of St. Peter and Paul in Vražné, Moravia, and given the name Johann.

He is a famous native of Moravia and Silesia where he spent most of his life (died 8. 1. 1884 in Brno). The memorial to this world-renowned fi gure was revealed in the house of his birth in 1965. The Museum of Gregor Mendel was opened in 2007 after the reconstruction of the entire farm. Its purpose is to acquaint visitors with Johann’s region – Kravařsko, in the district of Nový Jičín. The exhibition focuses on the basic description of J. G. Mendel’s journey, where he combined his scientifi c experiments with the life of a monk in the Augustinian monastery in Brno. Gregor Mendel died while serving as the abbot of the monastery (1868–84). Experiments with plant hybrids – the results of his long years of work with the fi nal postulates recognized as pillars of contemporary genetics – were published in 1865 in Brno before going into print in 1866. The birthplace of Johann Gregor Mendel provides, in addition to the museum exhibition, the option of accommodation in a hostel with a capacity of 45 people. The hostel is a base for cycling in the region and off ers the opportunity to hold seminars and training camps, especially for children and young people, and is a popular location for wedding ceremonies and receptions. It is a place where many couples exchange vows.
