Malenovice Castle

The Malenovice Castle is located near Zlín in the Okres Zlín , Moravia in the Czech Republic .


Malenovice was originally the seat of the Vladiken family of Malenowicz. In 1350 Nikolaus von Malenowicz sold the family property to the sovereign. Margrave Johann Heinrich probably had the castle built around 1360 . In the following centuries there were further modifications in the Gothic and Renaissance styles . The castle owes its current appearance to the lords of Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn . In 1766 Karl Vincenz von Salm and Neuburg inherited the rule. When he died in 1784, the inheritance fell to his daughter Ernestine, who shared the property with her husband Johann von Lamberg from 1795 . When the inheritance was divided in 1797, the rule of Malenovice with Pohorzelicze fell to their youngest daughter, Antonia, who was married to Czernin von Chudenitz . In 1804 she sold the rule to Leopold von Sternberg .

Today you can see archaeological finds in the castle and visit an exhibition about the castles in South Moravia.
