Description

Just 45 minutes long drive out of center of Prague in the middle of a beautiful countryside surrounded by deep forests awaits you a very charming Konopiště château, originally a medieval castle from the 14th century purchased and completely renovated mainly for the hunting purposes by the last heir to the Habsburg throne and a passionate hunter Franz Ferdinand d'Este, a noble man whose Sarajevo assassination became a direct trigger to the outbreak of the First World War.

During the visit to the château’s interiors you will be able to witness and learn how the 19th century's nobility lived and spent their free time, while admiring Ferdinand's extensive art collection including paintings, statues, tapestries and finally for the hunting residence more than appropriate numerous hunting trophies and collection of historical weapons. After the visit to the château, you will be granted an opportunity for a relaxing walk through the romantic Rose garden, occupied throughout the year by a stunningly beautiful and a slightly cheeky peacocks.

Overall a perfect option for those trying to escape a hectic capital of Prague and for a moment submerge themselves into the atmosphere of 19th century nobility's life while being surrounded by an untouched nature.
