“Floral Garden is a uniqe place in Kromeriz”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

You may visit several sights and attractions in Kromeriz, but you must not miss Kvetna zahrada. It is an extraordinary garden, surrounded by a long wall which saves many acres of gardens, mostly of a french type. The most attractive part lies at the western part and is created of complex and visually appealing patterns of flowers covering around 2 acres. The good news is a fact that you can step up to the top of a rather long colonnade just next to this most beautiful part.
I addition there are two main churches of which the baroque styled one, St. Jana Krtitele, is a real gem.
And when you walk throughout the town watch the houses and villas you are go by. You will appraise its beauty.
If you really like gardens then you should visit also the Podzamecka zahrada (Castle gardens) behind the Archbishop’s Castle down to the Morava river, resembling some English gardens. It includes lagoons and ponds with a lot of birds, though also animals from a small zoo may walk around.
You should go to the Castle tower (note its unusual construction – its walls are rotated in contrary to the ground plan of the Castle itself) and especially the hall of the Castle is also worth seeing. The Castle with both Gardens is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage.

“A lovely day in Kromeriz”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

The castle and the gardens were nothing impressive or extremely beautiful. The Flower garden was also under reconstruction and the visit was not as rewarding. But Kromeriz is a beautiful picturesque and the visit is still enjoyable. We had coffee in a cafe next to the Radnice (Town hall). The cafe was called U Radnice I think. The coffee there was delicious (I had a coffee with honey and cinnamon which was very good)!! The ice cream was not good quality.

“Kvetna zahrada/Floral Grarden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

The garden is being reconstructed, so that it is free of charge. The entrance to the roof of the colonnade is a bit hidden - head for the right end. The garden is open throughout the whole year.

“Have a relax in green culture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

The city of Kromeriz celebrates 750th anniversary this year, part of the town is mentioned on the list of UNESCO treasures, so why not to see it as the spring is so juicy and vibrant. April loves jokes so we did not get angry as we were told the guided tours in Kvetna Garden – although announced on the web – are not to happen, OK. One of the two greenhouses in the same place is under reconstruction, the other is a skladiště of plants – do not go there. Definitely spend your time in Podzamecka Garden to feel nature forces gently combined with human spirit. Your mind deserve this pleasure and I am sure you will be grateful to those who were ready to
employ architects, technicians and artists to unify their skills and talents to create a breathtaking beauty with philosophical dimension.
