The Lednice castle consists of a number of beige colour wings with an adjacent glass house, surrounded by a park. One of the central wings is a church built in Gothic style. The castle was built in the late 17th century by the House of Liechtenstein who employed German and Italian artists for its design. In the 19th century it was remodeled in Neo-Gothic style. The castle is richly decorated, both on the outside and in the interior which contains an amazing staircase carved out of one piece of wood.
