There is no more extensive parkland in the world than that between the Pálava hills and the Austrian border. Maybe that is why it is on the UNESCO list.
Almost 300 km2! The Lednice-Valtice area occupies an area one third larger than the nearby Brno. But in contrast, it is full of green parks, enchanting ponds and romantic corners
. You can wander around the castle gardens for days. Maybe even with a guide - a landscape architect who will show you the parks from a different perspective. The historical one.
Chapels, colonnades, artificial ruins or a triumphal arch.
All this belongs to the Region of Europe
- as the Lednice-Valtice area is also called - inseparably.
Above it all is the 23-metre high Obelisk
, which has been commemorating the peace between France and Austria since 1798.
