Cemetery church of the Holy Cross

Kladruby nad Labem was first mentioned in 1295 as the property of the Premonstratensian monastery at Litomy?l. During the second half of the 14th century, it came into the possession of the Cistercian Sedlec Abbey near Kutná Hora. In 1500, the village was acquired by William II of Pernstein, who already owned large parts of the Pardubice region. Kladruby remained in possession of the Pern?tejn family until 1560, when it was purchased by Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I from his master of the horse, Jaroslav of Pernstein.[2]

In 1579, Emperor Rudolf II established the Imperial Stud at Kladruby, from which Spanish-blood horses were bred for ceremonial purposes.[3]

Following the fall of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy in 1918, the stud farm at Kladruby came under state administration.[2][3]

World Heritage Site

On 6 July 2019, the Landscape for Breeding and Training of Ceremonial Carriage Horses at Kladruby nad Labem was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[4] The site includes the town, the neighboring village of Selmice, the Imperial Stud Farm, and the surrounding farmsteads, gardens, pastures, and watercourses.[5] The landscape was uniquely designed in the 16th and 17th centuries to effectively breed and train the Kladruber horses. In addition, the area demonstrates an outstanding example of the ferme ornée style of landscape architecture made popular in the 18th century.[5]
