The village Lednice has a long history and it is one of the most visited place in Czech Republic. It is because of local castle and park. Lednice is a part of the “Lednicko- valticky” area (the area around Lednice and Valtice town), which has been pronounced in 1992 as a regional monumental zone. This cultural area, with many natural jewels, was moreover written to the List of world cultural and natural heritage of UNESCO.
Today’s appearance is the result of Novo gothic rebuilding from 1846-1858 by Georg Wingelmuller. From the end of 17th century proud riding-halls have been kept in Baroque style (designed by Johannes B. Fischer from Erlach). There is a glass-case too which fits tightly to the castle. It has been built in 1843- 1845 by P.H. Desvignese. The tour around the castle shows to above all carving masterpieces as the library with fusiform staircase, impressive foyer and beautiful ceiling and the lower facing in Tyrkysovy (turquoise), Cerveny (red) and Modry (blue) salons.
The French park serves as a perfect frame as well as the large scenic park, one of the largest in Czech Republic. We may find there some remarkable buildings like “Apollonuv chram” (Apollo’s temple) from 1819, the Empire temple of “Tri gracie” (1825) and Hranicni zamek at the former Moravian-Austrian border. Within eyeshot from the castle the graceful minaret sticks out. It has been built by Josef Hardmuth from 1797-1804. A notable building from 1801 called Januv Hrad is set nearby the Lednice castle on the left Dyje’s bank. The park ranks among the best in Middle Europe (a monument of UNESCO) with trees, bushes and plants brought from four continents. It is place is numerous interesting events. A pleasant cultural experience can be the concert in the space of castle or castle’s chapel.
