Chateau Gallery

The extensive and unique collection of precious paintings was founded by Olomouc Bishop Karel II of Liechtenstein-Castelcorn in the second half of the 17th century. The part of the collection kept in Kroměříž consists of almost five hundred paintings exhibited in historical halls and a gallery; the second part is on exhibition in the Archdiocesan Museum in Olomouc. The collection has an extraordinary artistic value and is one of the most significant in the entire Europe. In the chateau gallery itself you can see over 85 originals of works by important European painters from the Gothic to the Rococo period: Tizian, van Dyck or L. Cranach.
