Lysá nad Labem is mainly known for its exhibition grounds, but you can also take a nice sightseeing tour here, the top of which is, of course, the local chateau with an adjacent large park. The Augustinian monastery with vineyards is also interesting

B. Hrozný Square in Lysá nad Labem

A good starting point for a sightseeing tour of Lysá nad Labem is Hus Square, where you can park. From here we continue to B. Hrozný Square, which has a rather park character. There is a monument to the fallen in World War I, the defunct church of St. John the Baptist (floor plan) and the Statue of the Virgin Mary Immaculate

Monastery terraces

We bypass the monastery building to get to the terraces, from where there is a view of Lysá nad Labem and the flat landscape of the Elbe.

Petzold's plane tree

From the monastery we return to the castle, which we go around as part of a walk in the park. In the corner of the ledge grows a beautiful plane tree more than 100 years old

Castle park in Lysá nad Labem

The castle park in Lysá nad Labem is by far the most beautiful part of this town, so it pays not to hurry anywhere and enjoy it here.
