An important part of the Archbishop’s palace in Kroměříž Chateau is a beautiful English-style garden with lots of fountains and ponds, which is home to many rare plants and trees.
Along with the Flower Garden, the Chateau Garden arose because Kroměříž was the residence of the archbishop, who devoted considerable resources to the improvement of his summer residence, and used the services of the foremost architects and artists of the imperial court. During peaceful walks you can see the original sculptural decoration and several romantic buildings – Pompeian and Colloredo Colonnades, gazebos, pavilions and the Fishing Peacock Court. In the last century there was a wildlife corner – home to a mini zoo and after 1970 part of the garden was converted into a sports complex for the school.
In 1995 the castle and gardens complex in Kroměříž was declared a national cultural monument of the Czech Republic. Subsequently in 1998, the whole complex was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
