LEDNICE

There are not many places in the world which have received such care as the elegant area around the spectacular Lednice and Valtice chateaux. An absolutely unique park has been created here over the centuries, full of rare tree species, romantic little buildings, fishponds and beautiful little corners. The Lednice-Valtice Complex, which has been included in the UNESCO list, is known as the Garden of Europe to this very day.

The huge plots of land on both sides of the current national border between Moravia and Austria were cultivated by generations of Lichtensteins for the whole of their reign lasting 600 years.

To please and surprise the guests, Viennese architects incorporated many small romantic buildings into the landscape, which lend the place a unique character. You can thus climb to the top of a minaret that is 60 m high, which offers an unforgettable view over the whole complex, have a pleasant picnic by the “Rendez-vous” hunting chateau or take a trip on a boat right up to the ruins of “John’s Castle”.
