The chateau, outbuildings and park, once the seat of the most powerful aristocratic family in Moravia, make up monument listed as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. The count’s residence was the centre of culture and economic administration for a large demesne in Valtice. The early Baroque was first introduced to Central Europe by Italian artists, with masters from Vienna taking part in later phases. The design of the residence follows a “triumphal path” schema. The chateau, the church and the town with a monastery hospital, make up a single whole, demonstrating the history, glory and power of the Liechtenstein family.
