Nelahozeves Castle

Local name: Zámek Nelahozeves

Nelahozeves Castle is a 16th-century building built on a rock on the Vltava River. It belongs to the most important late Renaissance buildings in the Czech Republic. The construction of the castle was started by Florian Gryspek in 1553, the then adviser to the Czech king Ferdinand I. After the death of Florian in 1588, his son Błażej Gryspek continued the construction. In 1623, Princess Polyxena Lobkowicz bought the property and to this day she belongs to the Lobkowicz family.

Currently, the palace houses a collection of works of the Lobkowicz family. The permanent exhibition includes twelve rooms illustrating the life of an influential noble family in the Czech Republic in the 19th century. Guests can visit the castle's dining room, bedroom, music room, chapel and library where rare books and manuscripts are stored. The salon is decorated with paintings of former masters: Jan Brueghel, Peter Paul Rubens, Paolo Veronese and Panini. The gallery is complemented by portraits of family members from the 19th century to the present. Other rooms are equipped with antlers, trophies and hunting weapons.
