The Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape (also Lednice-Valtice Area or Lednice-Valtice Complex, Czech: Lednicko-valtický areál) is a cultural-natural complex of 283,09 km² in the Czech Republic, South Moravian Region, close to Břeclav and Mikulov, next to another site registered by UNESCO - Pálava Landscape Protected Area.

History and description

During the 18th and 19th centuries the area was transformed by local manor lordship - the House of Liechtenstein - into some large landscape park with two centres:

These two localities are connected by so called Bezruč Avenue (from 1715). There are also one more village - Hlohovec. Between Lednice, Valtice and Hlohovec the Lednice Ponds (Lednické rybníky) are situated (Mlýnský, Prostřední, Hlohovecký and Nesyt Ponds). A substantial part of the complex is covered with the Pine wood (Boří les) and partially with a riparian forest adjacent to the River Dyje.

Except for above mentioned, there are a lot of bigger or smaller pavilions scattered throughout the whole complex (they often served as hunting lodges):

Стоит спокойно и неспешно пройтись по парку, полюбоваться цветами и аккуратно постриженным газоном. Наслаждения добавляет тот факт, что в парке не так много туристов. Нет лишнего шума.
