Podzámecká Garden was originally a vegetable and flower garden, which was established in the 15th century for purely practical reasons. Over the centuries, however, the garden gradually changed its appearance and role. A significant change took place in the 19th century, when it was rebuilt into a stylish landscape park with a total area of ​​64 hectares. To its advantage, it used the regulation of Moravia and the drainage of the formerly swampy floodplain forest.
