The origins of Chateau Lednice go back to medieval times, when it defended the trade route between Austria and Moravia. Altered countless times, it owes its current neo-Gothic guise to the restoration works commissioned in 1846 by the Liechtenstein family. The palace, remarkable for its decoration of carved wood, is home to a superb library. The highlight of the visit has to be the splendid grounds, with their formal gardens, 92m-long greenhouse, a park complete with a minaret, and a 34ha lake dotted with small islands.
