Kroměříž. Main Square

Kroměříž is a Moravian town, which in 1997 was recognized as the most beautiful town in the whole Czech Republic.

This webcam shows view from the building of the local Town Hall in the direction of the Baroque Kroměříž Bishop’s Palace. The Marian Column can be seen in the center of the Square.

The town’s main sight is the Baroque Kroměříž Bishop’s Palace. The Palace and the Flower Garden in Kroměříž were added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1998.

All houses on the main square are joined by an arch gallery. That is believed to be quite typical for European medieval architecture.

The Main Square is surrounded by restaurants and hotels. At any time of year you can buy souvenirs and the famous Czech pastry “trdlo” here. Important religious holidays, like Christmas and Easter, are traditionally conducted with market fairs.
