The season when castles and chateaux are open is getting to a close. However, there are still several weekends left to go there.

Famous Versailles in France was example for many other residencies of nobility. The chateau in Jaromerice, dubbed Moravian Versailles, was, aparently, also built with French Versailles in mind. It is no false advertising to bring more tourists to this gem of the Baroque era. Jan Adam of Questenberk really wished to build his own Versailles in Jaromerice. This town was supposed to become cultural center in the region as well as home to culture and muses. Plans were grandiose yet lack of funding allowed only partial fulfilment of Jan Adam's dream. Even though, the chateau really became center of culture and it has remained venue of many important culture events ever since.
