Title... Ludwig van Beethoven at Gratz in Silesia (Hradec nad Moravicí)

Ludwig van Beethoven spent some time in years 1806 and 1811 at the castle in Hradec nad Moravicí (today's name) as guest of the Prince Lichnowsky. In those days the place was known as 'Gratz in Silesia'.

To commemorate Beethoven's stays there every year there is held an International Competition of Musical Interpretation "Beethoven's Hradec".

Ludwig van Beethoven’s bust is situated in the castle’s park in Hradec nad Moravici. Two dates are ingraved on the pedestal: 1806 and 1811, when Beethoven came in this place.
