1st day: Departure from Prague. Lednice - Valtice complex. Accommodation in hotel " Zamek Cejkovice". Wine degustation. This day, you will visit the romantic chateau Lednice, which is situated in the extensive natural area on the embankment of the Dyje River. Originally a Gothic fortified settlement was located there, mentioned as early as 1222, which Prince Přemysl donated to the Lichtenstein family. Lednice was their residential place till the end of World War II with only one short break. In the 16th century, the settlement was rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau. In the late 17th century, the Viennese architect J.B.Fischer rebuilt it in the Baroque style. The Valtice Chateau is situated at the place of the castle of the Passau bishop from the late 12th century. In 1395, the Lichtenstein family also bought this place, rebuilt the castle several times and in the 16th century the castle was rebuilt in the style of Mannerism. During the Thirty Years' War, the Swedish military forces damaged the chateau several times; the damaged objects were later completely rebuilt into the recent Baroque residence. The reconstruction lasted up to 1730 and several renowned artists of that time, such as J.B.Fischer of Erlach, A. Ern and J.K.Ern, D.Martinelli and others, participated. After accommodation in hotel, we offer you a wine testing. Overnight in hotel.
