Kroměříž is a town in the Zlín Region of the Czech Republic with 28,000 inhabitants known for the Kroměříž Castle with castle gardens, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The castle and its tower lurks just beyond the central square. The castle is essentially just a very large estate residence - nothing that spectacular - we came to see the "English" style massive garden adjacent to it.
Across from the castle, a strategically positioned water closet, about 40 cents for a clean well-stocked bathroom.
I think they only open and close this big door once per cafe opening cycle.
Now to the sprawling garden - google maps on the cell-phone allowed us to wander but not get lost - all the trails are clearly marked in google, we just moved our "blue dot" along the trail lines.
They experienced large floods here in 1997, but we didn't notice any lingering issues today.
Peacock mom and babies on the prowl for bugs.
They even accommodate the "old" people to see it all.
See the mistletoe clumps in the tree tops.
Now off to Olomouc, our overnight town, and the last one we'll visit in the Czech Republic. Inviting sights along the way...
View from the pivovar ("brewery") garden seating in Olomouc:
Fancy digs - probably a baron residence originally, now sub-divided into multiple apartments and some offices.
