UNESCO

Of the twelve architectonic sights in the Czech Republic that are listed in the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List, two are located in South Moravia. The first is the Lednice-Valtice Culturlal Landscape, referred to as the Garden of Europe, the largest landscaped park in the world. In addition to being the place of residence for the Liechtenstein family, you can also find other minor structures in Lednice and Valtice, such as chapels, colonnades, artificial ruins and an arch of triumph. The second UNESCO sight is exceptional for its young age -- it is not a historic monument, but a crucial work of functionalist architecture, the functionalist Tugendhat Villa. It was built on a slope below Černopolní Street in Brno in 1930 by the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. UNESCO sights also include two biosphere reserves, Lower Moravia and the White Carpathians, as well as two sights of intangible cultural heritage, the Moravian-Slovakian dance called verbuňk and the Ride of the Kings.
