The route presents architecturally valuable buildings from the 1920s and 1930s designed by architects working independently of Bata. These are mainly houses that were built in the city centre by Zlín businessmen and wealthier bourgeoisie. In addition to family houses, a new type of tenement house is also emerging in the time of the coming economic crisis, which combines a residential part on the upper floors with a ground floor commercial area. The combination of these functions creates a unit that was a relatively secure investment generating rental income in times of economic instability. 

The Nebat's Zlín route focuses on the realisations of hitherto lesser-known creators such as Max Tintner, Viktor Jandásek, Miroslav Lorenc, but also on František Lýdia Gahura's own design work. He entered the shape of Zlín both with his realizations in the functionalist style and also as a city architect who approved the shape of the "non-Batista" part of the city.
