The colorful houses in the small town Kromeriz

The small town of Kromeriz in Moravia I visited during my short trip to the Czech Republic in October. The town, even though small, made a big impression on me, due to all the different colors. The colors of the flowers in the city centre and the color of the houses, a variety of pastell colors as pink, yellow and green. Why all this color me and Daniella (one of my travel mates) asked ourselves? I don´t know if there is a correct answer to the question but the colors are something that makes the area of Moravia in the Czech republic to stand out from the crowd. The town is from the 13th century and have been plundered by Swedes more than once! In Kromeriz we got to spend one day and I have some tips from only one day.

On the schedule was a tour of the archbishops castle of Kromeriz including the castle garden. The arrow takes you there.. Location: City and region of Kromeriz in the Zlin Region.

It has a well deserved spot in the World Heritage Site list as a completely preserved European garden with a mixed style of both renaissance and baroque influences. The main part was designed by the imperial architect Giovanni Pietro in 1665 – 1675. One thing everyone agreed on was that we wanted to stay longer to be able to take it all in.
