The minaret is perhaps the strangest of all the strange - i.e. uncommon in the countryside of Southern Moravia - edifices in the Lednice-Valticke grounds. They say that the building was built by Prince Alois Liechtenstein, when the local municipality refused to provide any land for construction of a church. The construction of minaret was finished in 1802 - it is a 60m high spire, rising from a low building with arcades and turrets, topped with the typical half-moon. Its highest gallery provides a view of the entire forest park of Lednice and Valtice and the fertile soil of Czech and Austrian plains beyond. The ridges of Pavlovské vrchy and the more distant White Carpathian Mountains appear on the horizon.
