Castle of Slavkov ranks among the oldest well-preserved manors in Moravia. According to written sources the history of the present Baroque castle began in the 13th century, at that time there was the commandery of Teutonic Knights Order. During the reign of Ulrich III, at the end of the 16th century, new Renaissance castle was built upon the older foundations based on four-winged ground plan with arcades and a huge prismatic tower.

 

The aristocratic family of Kaunitz was in possession of both, castle and the whole manor of Slavkov for more than four centuries. Dominik Ulrich Kaunitz from Kounice initiated the Baroque reconstruction of the Kaunitz Renaissance residence at the end of the 17th century. The task was entrusted to the Italian architect Domenicko Matinelli from Lucca. The author of fresco paintings was Andrea Lanzani who cooperated with the stucco master, Santino Bussi. Sculptures in the castle as well as in the park were created by Giovanni Giuliani.
