Lednice – Valtice Complex

The Lednice-Valtice site, as one of the treasures of the UNESCO cultural and natural heritage was recorded on its List in 1996.

The dukes of Liechtenstein transformed their dominion, between the 17th and 20th centuries, into a large park, where we find the baroque and Gothic architectures of castles, accompanied by small buildings in the romantic spirit, and a countryside arranged according to the principles of English gardens.

The Lednice -Valtice site consists of places where an imposing border castle was built in the 12th century. Today, there is a romantic castle, a picturesque small town, and, above all, a landscaped jewel of unprecedented proportions. The imaginary turning point of the beginning of a long development path of the entire region is the late 14th century, when the lords of Lichtenstein acquired one part of the land of the site. The current area within a range of almost 300 km² is the result of the improvements made in the English parks. With this, the baroque architecture meets here castle buildings, constructed in neo-Gothic style and other buildings in romantic style.

The park is located near the border with Austria. By car, you can take Prague (Brno) - Bratislava (Vienna) motorway, with the exit at Brno. A good train connection from Břeclav and Znojmo is provided several times per day.
