Zamek Lednice (Lednice Castle)

Pravdepodobne jiz v roce 1222 stala na miste dnesniho zamku goticka vodni tvrz.  Koncem 13. stoleti se majiteli panstvi stali Lichtenstijnove.  Tento rod se postupne stal diky uspesnym ekonomickym aktivitam, vyhodnym snatkum a zejmena diky skoupeni mnoha pobelohorskych konfiskatu nejbohatsim na Morave.  V 16. stoleti postavili Lichtenstejnove na miste stredoveke tvrze renesancni zamek, ktery byl koncem 17. stoleti nahrazen zamkem baroknim.  Poslidni prestavbu v duchu anglicke gotiky provedl v letech 1846 - 1858 Alois II. z Lichtenstejna.
