Lednice neighbourhood has always been popular among people. First farmers lived there four thousands years ago. Hand-in-hand with invention of money and the opportunity to show wealth, the original fortress became a castle. It was 17th century but it seems that owners sympatized with local prehistoric inhabitants, because they built an artificial cave with stalactites. Some made from a plaster, some ripped in Moravia carst. At the end of 17th century a ridding-hall was build by a project of a famous architecter J.B.Fischer from Erlach. The ridding-hall is nowadays the oldest well-preserved building of the castle.

The first historical record of this locality dates from 1222. At that time there stood a Gothic fort with courtyard, which was lent by Czech King Václav I to Austrian nobleman Sigfried Sirotek in 1249.

At the end of the 13th century the Liechtensteins, originally from Styria, became holders of all of Lednice and of nearby Mikulov. They gradually acquired land on both sides of the Moravian-Austrian border. Members of the family most often found fame in military service, during the Renaissance they expanded their estates through economic activity. From the middle of the 15th century members of the family occupied the highest offices in the land. However, the family’s position in Moravia really changed under the brothers Karel, Maximilian, and Gundakar of Liechtenstein. Through marriage Karel and Maximilian acquired the great wealth of the old Moravian dynasty of the Černohorskýs of Boskovice. At that time the brothers, like their father and grandfather, were Lutheran, but they soon converted to Catholicism, thus preparing the ground for their rise in politics. Particularly Karel, who served at the court of Emperor Rudolf II, became hetman of Moravia in 1608, and was later raised to princely status by King Matyas II and awarded the Duchy of Opava.

During the revolt of the Czech nobility he stood on the side of the Habsburgs, and took part in the Battle of White Mountain. After the uprising was defeated in 1620 he systematically acquired property confiscated from some of the rebels, and the Liechtensteins became the wealthiest family in Moravia, rising in status above the Žerotíns. Their enormous land holdings brought them great profits, and eventually allowed them to carry out their grandious building projects here in Lednice.

Lendice and Valtice now are the most beautiful places in South Morava for relaxation, rest and leasure in South Morava.

Брали в июле Toyota GT86 для поездки в Германию. Остались очень довольны, тем более, цена для такой машине была очень дешевая, общением с компанией тоже довольны. Если будем еще в Праги, машину будем брать только у них
I booked here new Toyota Avensis at September 2017. Nice, clean, spacious car, good conditions, very fast service. It was 30 minutes after the order by phone and delivery the car to the hotel. The price is the better than in SIxt or Hertz. Good luck RUNWELL.
