Velke Brezno Castle is one of the smallest Czech castles. It is picturesquely located in a vast angel park. It was built in the years 1843-1845 in the Empire style, but at the beginning of the 20th century it was rebuilt in the Renaissance style. Inside, you can see original furniture and everyday objects from the turn of the century.
The castle was the property of the Chotkov family. It was built by Karel Chotek, and the changes that can be seen to this day have been introduced by his granddaughter, Zofia. She became the wife of the successor of the Austrian throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, and died with him in 1914 during the assassination in Sarajevo.
The castle is a rectangular structure with a hip roof and an extended central part. Above the roof there is a tower with a decorative helmet and four smaller towers in the corners. There is a covered veranda on the garden side. The interior of the palace is furnished in the style of the late nineteenth century. You can see paintings of family members and landscapes, artistic glass and porcelain, as well as faithful copies of blinds from the early 20th century.
