Bohemian, Moravian, Silesian
In the second half of the 13th century bishop Bruno of Schaumburk built a Gothic castle here. At the start of the 16th century it was refashioned in the Renaissance style and became the residential seat of the Olomouc bishops. In 1643 the city and castle were damaged by the Swedes and not until the time of bishop Karel Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn (1664 - 1695) was the manor rebuilt. Its construction had lasted for 12 years and was executed according to projects of the significant architects Filibert Luches and Giovanni P. Tencally. The manor is dominated by an 84 meter tower. Behind the structure is a magnificent Under palace Garden, which is still topped by a slightly more distant Flowery Garden with extraordinarily valuable garden architecture. On the second floor of the manor is located the palace picture gallery, being the second most significant in the Czech Republic after the Prague gallery. Within its ten halls visitors can behold paintings of which several are world renowned. Various artists are represented in the gallery, for instance, Lucas Granach Sr., Hans von Aachen, Jacob Basano, Paol Veronese, Tizian (the work entitled "Apollon and Marsyas"), Jan Brueghel senior, Ant. van Dyck, and Johann H. Schönfeld.
Kroměříž stands on the site of an earlier ford across the River Morava, at the foot of the Chřiby mountain range, which dominates the central part of Moravia. The gardens and castle of Kroměříž is an exceptional complex and well-preserved example of a European Baroque princely residence and its gardens.
