Lednice-Valtice Area


The Lednice-Valtice area is the most impressive – an area which joined artificially transformed landscape with natural agricultural areas and aristocratic, municipal, and church architecture in a rural-agricultural style. Lednice, the representative summer residence of the Liechtensteins, is one of the most famous of the romantic buildings in the country. Lednice Chateau has been redeveloped on several occasions, however, the most fundamental reconstruction of the entire complex took place in the middle of the 19th century thanks to the combined influences of J. Wingelmuller and J. Heidrich, who opted for an English neo-Gothic style. A glasshouse to contain tropical vegetation was built at the same time as the Lednice-Valtice Avenue was.The French park was remodelled in the style of an English park. The park is further enhanced by the Empire Pavilions, the romantic ruins and the reproduction of classical temples.
