Valtice, South Moravian Region, Czech Republic

Valtice, South Moravian Region, Czech Republic 

The town of Valtice (Czech pronunciation: [ˈvalcɪtsɛ]; German: Feldsberg) in the Czech Republic contains one of the most impressive Baroque residences of Central Europe. It was designed as the seat of the ruling princes of Liechtenstein by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach in the early 18th century. Construction was supervised by Domenico Martinelli, who was employed as an on-site architect. The palace is surrounded by an English park with the Temple of Diana (1812) and other neoclassical structures. Together with the neighbouring manor of Lednice, to which it is connected by a 7 km-long lime-tree avenue, Valtice forms the World Heritage Site Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape. The princely family lost all its privileges with the collapse of their protectors the Habsburg Empire and by the then newly established state of Czechoslovakia in 1918, the predecessor of the Czech Republic; and the castle was confiscated after World War II, when the Communists seized power.
