As usual, I like seeing the gardens of Chateau's and this one was no exception!

The park/garden is one of the best historic gardens in Moravia.

In 1700, the flower parterre with two pools and a fountain, and an Orangery were built. The large pool was infront of the Chateau, nice for them to look at, and for me to take a photo!
As I walked, I found many parterre's and fountains, plus huge urns and unique broque sculptures of mythical figures.
The garden has been changed in design many times, and in the 19th century was changed to an English Park.
In the 1970s, the park was reconstructed back to how it looked in 1774. There were many massive Tree's of different varieties, these would be very nice for shade in the hot weather and in Autumn, it must be a picture.
Altogether, it was a very pleasant area for a stroll and I liked looking at all the mythical figures.
