Wondering where to go for a trip? You can unleash your imagination to the fullest here!
Is there anyone at all who didn't wish to be a princess or a brave knight living in an enchanted castle in their childhood? Anyone who wouldn't swap their three-room apartment for a mansion for a while? There are still places in this world, where you suddenly find yourself transported back in time and take away unforgettable experiences and beautiful memories.
Hluboká nad Vltavou: A Czech pearl among castles
Beautiful spots can be discovered at the castle Hluboká nad Vltavou, which could be described as a Czech version of Windsor, boasting rich ornate interiors, but also a library which contains 12 thousand books. A tour of the representative rooms costs 200 CZK per person, the private apartments can be visited for 150 CZK, and the amazing view of the surrounding landscape from a height of 103 meters from a luxury neo-Gothic tower is priceless. (Actually, the admission fee is 100 crowns.)
Chateau Sychrov: A fairytale mansion
Sychrov is an all-time favorite of cinematographers and filmmakers. Goldilocks, The Immortal Aunt, Radůz and Mahulena, and The Adventures of Criminology have all been filmed there. In addition to the beautiful Neo-Gothic jewels, the Rohans and the castle garden, you can experience a unique costume show here, as well as the so-called Technopolis, which is an exhibition focusing mainly on inventions and inventors of the 19th and 20th centuries. Children will not come short either: the little ones can look forward to a doll exhibition.
The price of the basic tour - family admission will make your wallet lighter by 530 CZK.
Červená Lhota: An absolute rarity
Červená Lhota is the third most visited castle in the Czech Republic and its unmistakable location in the middle of a water body as well as its typical red color naturally attract attention. The last owner of this jewel was the Imperial Prince Schönburg Hartenstein. Your visit to his authentically preserved dwelling can be enriched by a stroll through the English park, a cruise in a rented boat or a tour of the chateau chapel.
A tour of the historical interiors costs 180 CZK/adult, the attic rooms tour costs 80 CZK/adult. You can also take a peek into the cellars for 50 crowns.
Chateau Kroměříž and its garden art
The Archbishop's Chateau in Kroměříž prides itself in its breathtaking gardens, be it the Flower Garden or the Chateau Garden, and there is always something to discover! For example, more than 200 species of rare trees from different parts of Europe, America and Asia are planted in the Chateau Garden. In such a breathtaking setting, the magnificent luxury mansion is just the icing on the cake.
You can visit the representative halls, the castle tower and the abovementioned Flower Garden for 220 CZK per person, the castle painting gallery for 90 CZK, and Sala Terrana, which served as a passage to the Chateu Garden, for 90 CZK/person. Don't hesitate and start exploring the beauty of Moravia!
