  • 1 Kroměříž Castle. The palace is situated just off of the main square. It is an interesting example of the European Baroque palace and has been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is only accessible via a guided tour, mostly in Czech though other languages can be arranged. The interior was used during the filming of the film Amadeus. Highlights are the assembly hall and the library. The gardens behind the palace are laid out in the English style and provide a nice place for a walk. The flower garden was built by Italian architects, Filiberto Lucchese and Giovanni Pietro Tencalla. It is an Italian garden with paths surrounded by high bushes and was built on the area of 10 hectares. The Central building is very impressive and worthy of a look.
