Arboretum Bila Lhota

In the centre of the village just behind the lovely village square there is the Arboretum with its unique collection of 500 kinds of woody species and herbs that calls for being visited. It covers 2.5 hectares. It was established in 1926 by Qiudo Riedl in the former Manor Park. At the place where there is a chateau nowadays there used to be a fortress dating back to 1437, which was reconstructed in the Baroque style in the 40s of the 18th century. Today’ Classicist look of the building dates back to the beginning of the 19th century when the municipality started using it. At the moment there is a municipal office and health care centre there.

The Manor Park was originally established in 1700 by Nicolas of Harrach. Later on it was bought J. V. Speil, whose daughter got married to the conductor and composer of the Viennese Opera Kreutzer. Right here Kreutzer composed a part of his opera “Night at Granada” and thus some spirit of this charming place got into the European cultural fund.

In 1928-29 the winter was so harsh that most of the plants died. Based on this experience a year later only frost-resistant plants were planted out.

The Arboretum is not only a living botanical exhibition but also a “laboratory in the nature” and at last but not least e recreation area where one can please his or her heart too. There are many paths and routes in the park and there are name tags at every relevant tree – it depends just on the visitor which path he or she will select and which plant or tree will be of utmost interest...
