The large representative Baroque castle was built in place of a former Renaissance castle. It belongs to the Lednicko-Valtický area, which is entered in the UNESCO list. Worth seeing are the castle façade with sculptures, the interiors with stucco decorations and wall and ceiling paintings. The large castle park houses an outdoor theatre from the 18th century and a complex of romantic buildings from the 19th century.

More detail about the object:

The extensive palace complex of the State Chateau in Valtice was for almost 700 years the principal home of the Princely House of Liechtenstein. A guided tour today of the first floor reveals the Baroque style of the showcase rooms of the former owners, and the castle chapel must rate as one of the most beautiful churches not only in the Czech Republic but more generally in Central Europe. The current castle park is home to a not-to-be-missed herb garden. Cyclists should also pay a visit to the nearby classicist colonnade at Reistna and the hunting lodge called Rendez-vous in the form of a classicist arch.
