Břeclav Chateau

Basic information

Břeclav Chateau is originally a renaissance building, later rebuilt in romanticizing style in Břeclav. It is protected as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic. Nowadays the chateau is under reconstruction, and it is being returned into its original renaissance shape.

The Frontier castle originally stood in the place of the chateau. The castle was built by prince Břetislav I, who gave the domain his name. The castle was one of the administrative centres of the medieval principality of Moravia, which later became one of mansions. The Přemyslid castle together with New and Old Břeclav passed to the possession of the Žerotín family who transformed the castle into a renaissance chateau in the early 16th century. Ladislav Velen of Žerotín (1579-1638) lost the Břeclav domain due to his participation in the Protestant rebellion after 1618. In 1638 the Liechtenstein family, the owners of neighbouring domains of Valtice and Lednice, acquired it.
