The Archbishop's Palace is a magnificent building with impressive period interior. One of my favorite rooms was the library, complete with hundreds of texts as well as the ceremonial hall at which meetings in the Congress of Vienna were actually held. By climbing up to the top of the bell tower, we had a wonderful view of the town and surrounding countryside.
The gardens across the town were another nice stop, a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of Prague. One of my favorite parts of our excursion into Moravia was the Archbishop's Wine Cellers here in Kromeriz. We had a wine tasting complete with traditional plates of meats, breads, vegetables, and cheeses. We were able to taste three red and three white wines, all brewed in Kromeriz, some of them actually used as Communion wines for the Catholic Church in the region.
Kromeriz was a delightful Moravian Town and a UNESCO world heritage site. It is famouse for its Archbishop's Palace, Gardens, and Wine Cellars, all of which we enjoyed visiting. I would highly recommend Kromeriz for a taste of Moravia.
