Special program for accompanying persons: Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape - day-long trip, van departure 9:00

Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape is one of World Heritage sites and is a part of World Heritage Journeys. The Lednice castle is one of the most visited monuments in our Czech republic. Neo-Gothic reconstruction in the 19th century, it has created a residence surrounded by one of Europe's largest parks (almost 200 ha), in which the visitor finds the Palm House, the Venetian fountain, Roman aqueduct, the Chinese Pavilion, artificial ruins, minaret and Johns Castle. In the morning, accompanying persons will visited the representative halls are located on the ground floor of the chateau – they served as venue for social events, balls etc. The chateau as it looks today dates from 1846-1858, when Prince Alois II decided that Vienna was not suitable for entertaining in the summer, and had Lednice rebuilt into a summer palace in the spirit of English Gothic. The hall on the ground floor would serve to entertain the European aristocracy at sumptuous banquets, and was furnished with carved wood ceilings, wooden panelling, and select furniture, surpassing anything of its kind in Europe.

In the afternoon they will visit the Lednice French Park and the English Garden, which reflects a half-thousand-year-long continuous effort by the Liechtenstein family to build a perfect and harmonious world and build on the castle grounds. Part of the park is a replica of a Roman aqueduct connected with a piled rock that hides a romantic artificial cave called Hell. It is possible to sail by boat or ride by horse carriage.
Expected return to Brno about 4 pm.
