Chateau gardens and the Flower garden

The chateau gardens spread out from below the chateau towards the Moravian River. Their function changed in the 19th century to a park of 64 hectares. The flower garden left Karel II. Lichtenstein-Kastelkorn swamp ramparts of the town. During the 19th century two buildings of tropical and cold glass and were built along one side along with residential and administrative buildings. The late renaissance style flower garden was completed in 1665 on an elongated square of 300 metres by 485 metres. The main gate leads to an unusual long gallery - a colonnade 244 metres long. The garden is interlaced with an intricate irrigation system, fish ponds, and fountains of various types.
