Kroměříž with its historical and unique monuments is called Athens of Haná. We stayed a few minutes away from the city and did not miss a visit. The Flower Garden and the Chateau Garden at the Archbishop's Chateau are listed on UNESCO and belong to the most visited sights in the Czech Republic.
The Chateau Garden is a romantic park and ideal place for walking and relaxing in the countryside. You will find a great network of water canals and ponds and various romantic buildings there. Ella was most attracted to the small ZOO, where deers, donkeys, goats, geese and ducks rested in a pleasant place. There are monkeys here in cages too. There is a free access to the garden, you can use the main entrance next to the chateau or enter from Vejvanovsky and Na Kopečku streets.

Kromeriz Flower Garden, also known as Libosad, is one of the most important gardening works in the world. Today, it is practically the only representative of such a composite unit in Europe. The central part is conceived on a plan of an elongated rectangle with a number of geometrically cut green. At the main entrance, we first went through both greenhouses, in one there is a café. We continued on the main path first to the labyrinth, from where Ella didn´t want to leave. She was excited to run around and find her way in and out. Nearby, there is the rotunda, which features the renowned geometrically-edged greenery. We climbed the stairs to the gallery to see the garden from above.
The main axis of the garden is complemented by ornamental parks, fountains, rotunda, labyrinths, water areas, bowling and so called Strawberry hills. This basic layout complements other adjacent ornamental and farm areas such as Orange Garden, Dutch Garden, greenhouses, farm yard, pheasant, Rabbit Hill, birdwatching. Do not forget to visit this garden UNESCO jewel.
