Archbishop Palace Kroměříž

Local name: Arcibiskupský zámek Kroměříž

The Archbishop's Palace with its adjacent gardens was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1998. The exhibits located here are among the most valuable monuments in the Czech Republic. Tourists have the opportunity to visit the Throne Room and the Sejm Room, rooms included in the summer apartment, as well as the Lenna Room with rich painting decorations. The tour also includes a historic library and two study rooms - music with manuscripts of Mozart, Beethoven and Vejvanovski, and numismatic with a unique collection of original coins and medals.

It is also worth visiting this place because of the picture gallery. It is the second most important gallery in the Czech Republic. 85 originals from the collections of Central European painting of the 15th-18th centuries are exhibited here (among others, Tycjan, van Dyck, L. Cranach). It was founded by the Olomouc bishop Karel II Liechtenstein-Castelcorn. It is also worth visiting the terrena room, which is the link between the residence and the Palace Garden. On its walls there are scenes from Ovid's metamorphoses.
