It is interesting to visit Zlín (first Zlín, later Gottwaldov, now again Zlín). It is interesting to visit the older town and from Bata's Skyscraper also Zlín as a whole. I was most fond of the houses Bata had built for his workers.

Unfortunately, I was visiting in winter, weather was foggy, so could not admire all the view. Nevertheless, it was great to see whole city from above and get to know istory of the skyscraper.

Today the building is a centre of Zlin administration, but you can still go inside and learn a bit of Zlin´s history - for free. On the ground level you can see the Bata´s elevator which was once used as a private office of Thomas...More
