Exceptional Venue

The Town of Kroměříž – The Seat of Archbishops

The Academy enjoys the use of the grounds of two artistic institutions – The Conservatoire of P. J. Vejvanovský in Kroměříž and the State School of Performing Arts in Kroměříž, both located in the historic heart of the town. The Baroque spaces combined with art create an unmistakeable “Genius loci”. This Moravian town, also nicknamed “Athens of Haná”, charms its visitors with its beautiful buildings and unique historic sights. The Archbishop’s Chateau and beautiful gardens of Květná and Podzámecká are designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The town is one of the most popular places to visit in the Czech Republic.
