Location: Jaroměřice nad Rokytnou

The Jaroměřice nad Rokytnou baroque château is one of the largest structures dating from the first half of the 18th century both in this country and in Europe. This originally medieval fortress standing on a cliff was protected from the south by the swamps of the River Rokytná. The château received its renaissance appearance at the end of the 15th century which is also when the foundations were laid for the gardens. Jan Adam, the last of the House of Questenberk, gave the château its current baroque appearance. Some parts of the château’s representative areas have maintained their original appearance, while others include installations in the spirit of the aristocratic lifestyle of the 18th and 19th centuries. The châtea park in the Franco-English style with an area of 9 ha is open to the public.
