[an error occurred while processing this directive][an error occurred while processing this directive] Lednice-Valtice is a region in South Moravia, Czech Republic. This region, covering an area of 283 square kilometers, was ruled by the dukes of the Liechtenstein family from the 17th to the 20th century. The dukes built many towns, villages and castles in the area.

Most of the buildings in Lednice-Valtice were designed by the famous architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach (who also designed many of the buildings in Salzburg, Austria, another World Heritage city) in the Baroque style. These intermingled with the existing castles of Lednice and Valtice whichare in the Classical and Neo-Gothic styles. The result is one of the largest artificial landscapes in Europe.

The Lednice-Valtice Cultural Landscape was inscribed as a World Heritage Site during the 20th session of the World Heritage Committee which met in Merida, Mexico, on 2-7 December, 1996.
