Kroměříž was first mentioned in 1107. The development of the town was significantly influenced by the Olomouc bishops and archbishops. The Kroměříž Château was their summer residence, and the construction activities of the bishops, especially after the Thirty Years’ War in the 17th century, brought about a major restoration. Thanks to this Kroměříž ranks among today’s prominent historic cities in the Czech Republic. The centre of Kroměříž was declared an Urban Monuments Preservation Area in 1978. The complex formed by the Archbishop’s Château, the Flower Garden and the Château Garden was declared a National Cultural Monument in 1995 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. Yes, this is Kroměříž, a town saturated with culture, learning and art. It is no wonder that it has earned the nickname of the Athens of Hana and is one of the most visited cities in the Czech Republic.
