Gardens and Castle

Archbishop´s Palace of Kroměříž was reconstructed into its present day form by Bishop Karel Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn, during the second half of the 17th century. It represents an exceptionally well-preserved example of a Central European Baroque princely residence and the associated gardens: Palace gardens with park, naturally landscaped and a Flower garden from late Renaissance. Palace gardens which comprises 64 hectares are one of the largest gardens in the Czech Republic. Its dominating portion is in the English park style with many pools and rare woods and romantic edifices.

In Floral Gardens we can find a 244 meter colonnade lined with 44 statues from ancient mythology, the Lion Fountain , the Triton Fountain and the rotunda with a Foucault pendulum demonstraing the rotation of the Earth around its axis.
