Lednice na Moravě - 10 km

It is surrounded by a French and English parks, a lake and several romantic buildings and it makes part of the Lednice-Valtice Area listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.

The Lednice-Valtice Complex, a cultural landscape aptly dubbed "the Garden of Europe" in the 19th century, is the result of the acts of people and of nature. It is to the great credit of the Lichtenstein family that the complex came into being. Throughout seven centuries, they have built chateaus, gardens, parks and lakes in the local estate. In 1996 the Lednice-Valtice Complex was included in the UNESCO List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage. The dominant features of the complex are the Lednice and Valtice chateaus. Both structures are linked with eminent artists. Built in the spirit of the English neo-Gothic style, the Lednice Chateau is more attractive for visitors, the largest crowd-puller beingits Mannerist park with a number of small buildings dominated by a minaret, an element rarely met in Europe. Visitors will find a range of other minor structures in the Lednice-Valtice complex, all incorporated with a great deal of sensitivity in lovely landscape which is dotted with numerous ponds. These serve as a resting point for migratory birds and a paradise for ornithologists.
