History
The municipality Lednice has rich history. This fact was appreciated by the inscription into the World Heritage List UNESCO.

The near situated municipality Nejdek is also a part of Lednice. Nejdek was an important settlement in the past.

Lednice is situated in the world, which is formed by the river Thaya and by the creek Vcelinek. Part of Lednice lies on a high terrace. There are many animals and plants in the region of Lednice, mainly because of the protection of the nature in this area.

People were living in the region already in the stone age, approximately 30000 years ago. This fact is proved by archaeological findings, especially by the world known statue Venus of Vestonice.

The Romans lived in the surrounding of today's lakes, near Musov and Pasohlavky, where they built a fortification. This Roman settlement is in connection with the famous Roman inscription in Trencin, which was sculptured into the rock. The Romans came into our region before the begin of our era and left the area round 400 after Christ. It is probable, that they have brought growing of wine and production of wine into our region, so the wine tradition holds in the Lednice region since beginning of our era.

The Celts came also to our region, they resided here during of several hundreds of years, approximately 0 - 700 after Christ. This fact is proved by the present genetic tests, which were performed on the people from Moravia (large region, where Lednice is situated). According to the tests, the inhabitants of Moravia have about 4 percent of Celtic genes ("Celtic blood"), which is the most of all the nations in Europe. E.g. the French have about 2 percent of Celtic genes.

The next inhabitants of Lednice were the Slavs. They came into the region after the Celts, starting with the 5th century after Christ. The rests of old Slav fortifications are preserved in Nejdek, near the Thaya river, and also rests of buildings of the Slavs are preserved in Pohansko (temple, ground building). These archaeological findings are now placed in the museum in the renovated chateau Pohansko. It is interesting, that in the locality Nejdek, the Slavs moved alternatively from the river Thaya to the more high positioned chapel and back. The distance between these two places is round one kilometre. The moving was probably caused by the floods. When the Thaya river flooded the settlement of the Slavs, they got angry and moved to higher position. But then it was too far to the river, to bring the water from there. The Slavs were lazy, so that they moved back to the river. But there the flood came again, so they moved higher and so on and so on, periodical change.

From the times between the 5th and the 8th century, the rests of the glowing burial-ground near Pritluky kept until our times.

The self-mentioned chapter of the history of Lednice are the famous times of the empire Great Moravia, where the Slavs ruled over the central Europe and many associated regions. The centre of the Great Moravia empire was probably in Mikulcice or in Velehrad, how it is proved by many archaeological findings. The empire extended up to Slovakia, to the city Nitra, where ruled the prince Pribina. Memories of these times were revealed also in Pohansko, near Lednice, e.g. rests of the temple of the old Slavs.

In the times of the Great Moravia, to the empire came two Christian missionaries, named Cyril (Konstantin) and Metodej. They were sent to us from Constantinopole, with the task to spread the Christianity here. They invented the first written alphabet in this country, named "cyrilice". Not far from Lednice, round 1 km in the direction to Mikulov, they planted two sacred lime trees, built a small church and founded a Christian community. The place was chosen very carefully, it is the geographical centre of the plateau near Nejdek with beautiful outlook on the Palava Hills. And moreover, the place is surrounded by eeriness and has probably healing effects. Both these lime trees survived up to our times, but, unfortunately, some years ago, somebody lighted them. The firemen extinguished the fire, but it was too late. Only small rests have kept from the trees, which were cemented so that they did not come apart and so that they are preserved for future generations. The small church itself is well-preserved, including internal decorations.

Great Moravia expired round 1000 after Christ, because of antagonisms between the three sons of the prince Svatopluk. The legend tells, that before his death Svatopluk showed three rods to his three sons. When the rods were in tie together, it was not possible to break them, but when Svatopluk separated the rods, he broke them quite easily one after another. By this Svatopluk showed to his sons, that they should keep together. But the sons did not care, they contended and fought against each other. So the formerly powerful empire broke down.

About in the year 1000 after Christ, the first Austrians and Germans came into the Lednice region. First it was the clan of the Orphans (Waisen, Sirotci), later the Liechtensteiner and Dirichtensteiner.

"Izgruobi" is the first written name of Lednice in the Slavian-Latin form. Later, the place got the German name "Eisgrub", which the municipality kept until the year 1945, when the name was changed to Lednice. The first inscription concerning Lednice is from the year 1222. At that time, Lednice was owned by the powerful clan of the Orphans, who came from Austria. They got large possessions in the south of Moravia from the Czech king Premysl Otakar I., for helping him on the battle fields. The Orphans owned not only Lednice and Nejdek, but also Klentnice and the fortification over Klentnice, which they built and named Orphan's Castle. The Orphans brought the German colonists to their lands, and so the German colonists settled also in Lednice. The name "Lednice" itself was for the first time mentioned in the year 1412 in the form "Lednycze". All these names mean a place, where it is cold.

One of the Orphans was drinking and loving women too much and so he lost almost all his possessions in the region. The Liechtensteiner bought the possessions before the year 1332. Lednice became gradually the centre of the Moravian rule of the Liechtensteiner, as opposition to Valtice, the Austrian capital city of Liechtensteiner. The Liechtensteiner introduced strict economic rules. The main rule was "just one", when only one of the Liechtensteiner was allowed to rule over the whole clan. It is also today's principle of personal controlled bankruptcy, which was introduced first by the Liechtensteiner. If such leader would loose the property by drinking, loving etc., then the other Liechtensteiner paid his debts, but the man was for ever suspended from the ruling. He was allowed to live, got some reasonable pension, but no possibility to return to the power again. In 1638, Charles Eusebius of Liechtenstein bought also the Breclav domain, then the Liechtensteiner owned a huge complex of lands along both sides of the boundary between Moravia and Austria. There were fields, meadows, forests, courts, three towns (Podivin, Hustopece and Valtice), many small cities and tens of municipalities. Lednice was the centre of the area, step by step became famous because of changing the area into cultural landscape.

The Liechtensteiner were building the cultural landscape for hundreds of years. They rebuilt the Lednice castle several times, added some economic parts of the castle (e.g. the castle of horses) and also the glasshouse. Outside they formed the marvellous garden. They changed the flow of the Thaya river and have made several ponds, including the Castle Pond. The change of the flow of the river and the making of the Castle Pond took 7 years, 700 people worked there, so that this is altogether 4900 man-years. They established the large park, bringing there hundreds of big trees from America and from the whole world. They built many salets (small architectonic buildings within the landscape), like Moresque Waterworks, Turbine, Cave, Aqueduct, artificial ruin Janohrad (John's Castle), Little Hunting Chateau, Temple of Apollo, New Court, Temple of Three Graces, Little Fishing Chateau, Chapel of Saint Hubert, Rendezvous (Temple of Diana), outlook terrace Colonnade (Reistna, Rejstna, Rajsna), Little Border Chateau, Little Chateau Pohansko, Little Chateau Lany... All of these building are preserved up to our times and are being renovated now. The Liechtensteiner loved the wood-carving as well, the proof are for example the wooden stairs, which were carved from on tree, it took 7 years.

The Liechtensteiner were fighting at the battle at Slavkov (Austerlitz) against Napoleon. It was the battle between Austria and Russia on one side and France on the other side. Napoleon got victory because of his ingenious strategy. The submarshall Jan of Liechtenstein commanded part of the Austrian army. He got the leadership on the 14 November 1205 from the former leader Auersperg. He found the army in a very bad status and did his best to improve it. He brought the clothes, food and drink for the soldiers from Lednice and other his places. He improved also the communication in the army. But it was too late, he got too less time for his task. Thank to some disturbances, he came too late to the battle field and Napoleon won in the meantime.

Around 1800, Josef Hardtmuth worked as main architect in Lednice. He invented the (modern, today's) pencil there. At that times, the pencils were formed only by the graphite, they were writing, but they often broke and the users had quite dirty and black hands from such writing. Josef Hardtmuth invented, how to pack the graphite into the wood, so that the pencil does not break and the hands are not dirty any more. He invented and made the so called "yellow pencil", for which got a full acknowledgement during the economic exhibition in London. He got the patent, started the production of pencils in Lednice. But the Moravian people were accustomed to get too much money for their work, they required too high wages. So Josef Hardtmuth moved to southern Bohemia, where the pure workers were content with much lower wages. Josef Hardtmuth founded the company Koh-i-noor in Ceske Budejovice, this company lasts up to these times and is one of world largest producers of pencils and office equipment.

In 1806, the humanist Jan II of Liechtenstein has forbidden the huntings in the area of Lednice.

After 1945, the name of the municipality was changed from Eisgrub to Lednice. Many German people were forced to leave the area and Czech people came here instead of them.

It is interesting, that the people in Lednice name the Liechtensteiner "Lechenstajni" and like to remember them. The Liechtensteiner cared well about their underlying people, e.g. in winter they let the children bring to school by carriages.

It is possible, that the Liechtensteiner will return to Lednice again, and it would be good, as the possession would overcome into the hands of the correct owners. The present Liechtensteiner prince Hans Adam II is an excellent economist, who put into order the economy of the Liechtenstein country. So it can be expected, that the tourism and services in Lednice would go up, the region would blossom and profit from this would have also the Czech state and the inhabitants of Lednice and surroundings, businessmen as well as employees.
