Kunin Castle

Local name: Zámek Kunín

Kunin Castle is a Baroque-Classicist building standing in a vast park. In the past, it was a center of culture and education patronized by the owners. Currently, after reconstruction, almost 20 castle rooms are open to the public. You can see restored classicist wall paintings. The living room, music room, school room, owners 'daughters' room and many others were also reconstructed,

The castle design is the only work in the Czech Republic of the famous Viennese architect Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt. To this day, his chimney system is considered a brilliant example of the technique of that period. The period of the greatest glory of the castle fell at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. Its owners were then involved in the cultural life of the country. Artists and musicians visited the castle. A very high school was also opened here. Its graduate was, among others, the Czech historian František Palacký.

Since 1999, works have been carried out in the castle to restore its former splendor. Further rooms are being restored, and the collections of former owners' art are returning to the rooms. In the late Baroque building, you can see painting collections, original furniture from the beginning of the 19th century, and hunting trophies. Early and classical music concerts are also held here.
