City with a beautiful castle
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
Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist
From the square you can see one of the biggest landmarks of the city – the Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist
Elbe Museum - Bedřich Hrozný Museum
Opposite the church is the Elbe Museum. There is a permanent exhibition Life and Work of Bedřich Hrozný,
Another view of the church
We climb slowly and the rear view of the church opens up to us. You will definitely be interested in the many statues that are on the walls around the church
We climb the quiet Zámecká street, along the wall bordering the chateau park
The first view of the castle
Finally we go through the gate and the first view of the castle opens up to us
But first we will see the Augustinian monastery, which looks completely different from the north than from the south from the wine 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.
The monastery terraces are not only about the view, but also about beautiful flower beds with flowering plants and vines.
The most beautiful view of the monastery
We go all the way down to the lowest terrace from where the most interesting view of the monastery is
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.
Closing the circuit
We leave the park through the eastern gate and take Komenského Street back to B. Hrozného Square, where the circuit is slowly closing.
