Where to go in KroměřížUNESCO Tourist Route

Chateau Garden

Originally it was only a vegetable and flower garden with a garden nursery, situated in the close vicinity of the original castle. From 15th century its function and look changed and in 17th century it was rebuilt to be a baroque garden stretching right from the chateau to the staircase by the river. In 19th century the garden was rebuilt to become a park with 64 hectares in area, using regulation of the river Morava and draining the marshy flood forests. It is one of the most significant European parks because of the liberal use of the water system with streams and ponds, botanical compositions of meadows and groups of trees with romantic buildings (Pompeian Colonnade, Peacock Courtyard, Fisherman Pavilion, Colloredo Colonnade) and sculpture decorations (a bust of archbishop Rudolf Jan, a bust of Archbishop Somerau-Beckh).

Opening hours

The garden is a sought-after place of peace, relaxation and knowledge. Entry is free during opening hours (in summer 7am – 7pm, in winter 7am-4pm). The garden is closed during rainy or windy weather. Dogs are not allowed in the garden.
