Visitors to Kroměříž are of course captivated by the town hall and its extraordinary clock. In the southern tip of the square stands the 84 metre high tower of the Kroměříž Chateau - the town's most remarkable monument.
Most significant is the Congress Hall, where in the year 1848, the constituent imperial congress of the Austrian monarchy took place. The archbishop's chateau is again known above all thanks to the gallery with paintings by Tizian, Chranach and van Dyck.
The exquisite premises of the chateau even today include areas for meetings of various symposiums which are also interesting for filmmakers. Director Miloš Forman finished his film Amadeus here. The profile of the chateau tower is also found on the Czech thousand crown banknote. Within the chateau grounds are gardens that are not only the green lungs of the town, but also feature one of the most significant historical works of garden architecture not just in the Czech Republic but in the whole of Europe.
