The town of Kroměříž is the historical gem of the Zlín Region. It boasts picturesque streets, a welcoming atmosphere, but above all the complex of the Archbishop’s Castle and gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the Castle you can take a tour of the historic halls of the former summer residence of the Archbishops of Olomouc and of the tower with its breathtaking views. In the adjacent Castle Garden, which is free to enter, you can take a ride on a sightseeing train, visit a zoo corner, and admire the ubiquitous free-roaming peacocks, romantic structures and locations. The Flower Garden – or the Pleasure Garden – is a bit off the town.
The early Baroque French garden is
the only surviving garden of its type in Europe. During a guided tour you can see the unique Foucalt’s Pendulum suspended in the Rotunda. Children will love the maze, the bird aviary and the rabbit hill. In addition to the UNESCO monuments, Kroměříž offers interesting exhibitions for all ages at the Museum of Kroměříž District on the main square or an experiential and emotionally charged exhibition on life and work of Karel Kryl, a native of Kroměříž, which is located right next to the town hall. In the summer season, a boat cruise on the Morava River or costumed tours are also sought by the visitors.
