Regional Museum in Mikulov - Chateau Mikulov

The imposing chateau was originally a medieval castle that guarded the turbulent border
with Austria. The later owners of the estate, the Liechtensteins (from the middle of the
13th century) and the Dietrichsteins (from the 16th century) gradually converted it into
its present Baroque grandeur. The chateau went up in fl ames in 1945, and was then
again restored thanks to the work of the Society for the Restoration of the Chateau.
Today it houses the Regional Museum in Mikulov and you can fi nd many interesting
exhibits here.

Maybe you don't know that ...:The headquarters of the Regional Museum is Mikulov's imposing chateau, rising high above the picturesque town over the road between Brno and Vienna. The border between Moravia and Austria was once guarded by a medieval castle founded by Czech King Otakar Přemysl I. Its Gothic defense towers, which still stand out from the body of the castle, remind us of how old Mikulov really is. The owners of the town, the families Liechtenstein and Dietrichstein, gradually developed their residence according to the requirements of the times, to its present Baroque elegance.
