The Lednice castle (known as Eisgrub in German) is a beautiful castle in the south of the Czech republic close to the border to Austria. The castle is built in Neo-Gothic and Baroque styles and is surrounded by a large, well-kept park with beautiful gardens and vegetation. The Lednice castle is one of the most scenic castles in the Czech republic and attracts a large number of visitors every year. Originally a Renessaince villa, the castle was built by the Liechtenstein family in the 17th century and later rebuilt in Neo-Gothic style in the 19th century. The castle was added to the UNESCO world heritage list in 1996 together with the castle of Valtice.
