Beautiful Baroque garden and English park.

Order Tour Code: C NW2
Tour availability: Tour available in summer season

In spite of the fact that originally it was intended to be rather a summer palace, the chateau at Veltrusy was built with a grandiose Baroque conception as a monumental complex of buildings whose height was graded according to the axis running from south to north and surrounding the cour´honneur which was closed on the northern side by a row of statues placed on the pillars of a fence.
In its original form Veltrusy Chateau ranked among the most outstanding works of the period of Baroque architecture in Bohemia.
The castle was closed after the flood in 2002 and is under the restoration, the park is open to the public.

From the eastern, southern and western sides the chateau was surrounded by a small, geometrically attached Baroque garden with a fountain, a considerable number of sculptured works, a greenhouse and a similar building containing fig trees.
The chateau is well known with the English park that was an artificially created ideal landscape composed by a gardener with the aim of achieving the highest degree of pictoresqueness. The transition from small Baroque gardens to the large Romantic Classical landscape park of a specific type took place in the environs over a period covering something less than a century.

It is closed in winter ( November - March ), it is closed on Mondays.
