Wine enthusiasts frequently travel to some of the world's finest vineyards, but there are other sites in the world that are sure to get people's attention. 

While the Czech Republic already has a lot of scenery to admire, people may want to be sure to head to the South Moravian wine-making region, where a number of tourists can visit a house that is made of more than 180,000 wine corks, according to the Vancouver Sun. 

Not only does the house feature a number of corks, but they are arranged in different eye-catching patterns. Miroslav Scoboda, a bricklayer who owns the house, tells the news provider that he is currently working on a heart made out of corks on the fourth side of the structure in the yard. This has been a work in progress for more than three years. 

In addition to the cork house, there are a number of wineries in the Czech Republic that make a number of different wines, such as Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir, according to Chiff.
