Sala Terrena

The sala terrena of the Kroměříž Chateau is one of the most beautiful and largest in Moravia. It was used as a unique connection between the chateau residence and the Chateau Garden. Until today it has preserved its original appearance and beautiful stucco decoration with frescoes from the late 17th century. The three richly decorated halls representing the changing of the seasons are followed by two artificial caves: the first charmingly recounts the Ovid’s “Metamorphoses” and the second recalls the tradition of medieval mining of rare minerals that were excavated in the vicinity of the chateau and used for minting archbishopʼs coins in the chateau mint.
