Hanna (Czech Haná ) or Hanakei (Czech Hanácko ) is an approximately 1550 km², very fertile plain in Moravia in the Czech Republic , crossed by the Hanna and March rivers . It lies between the towns of Olomouc , Kroměříž , Prostějov and Vyškov . Its inhabitants are called Hannaken . The part that traditionally belongs to Austrian Silesia is called Slezská Haná .

The name Haná for the region has appeared in written sources since the 17th century, for example in the map by Johann Amos Comenius from 1627. Up to the 19th century, a specific folk culture developed here with its own style of clothing, customs, folk music, Folk dance and rural architecture. The Central Moravian or Moravian-Hanakic dialect is a subgroup of the Moravian language .

The rich peasant costumes , which were worn by men until around 1880 and by women until the beginning of the 20th century, are particularly well known . The tradition of national costumes is maintained today by folklore groups. In the municipalities of Rymice , Příkazy and Lysovice there are museum villages with typical farmhouses of the region.
