Zlin Through Photographs

The town of Zlín, in the Czech Republic, is in many aspects a very unique place. The name Baťa doesn't need a lot of introduction worldwide. The Baťa shoe manufacturing enterprise was truly a revolutionary commercial concept that withstood many historical obstacles and grew into a business empire. The name Baťa is reflected in many ways within the town.  Now rare are, for example, the houses called Baťa houses, which Tomáš Baťa built for his rapidly increasing work force and which give the town its typical look. What all you should not miss while studying in Zlín. See our gallery.
