Anna sent greeting from her beautiful town of Břeclav situated in the south of Czech Republic.
The beginning of castle's history go back to the 11th century when a border fort was built. In 1534 the Žerotin brothers bought the domain and converted the old castle into a Renaissance castle. The castle got its modern appearance at the beginning of the 19th century, when the Liechtensteins created the Lednice-Valtice Area. In 1945 the chateau became the property of the Czechoslovak state. Today it is administered by the town.
