Holiday Highlights
Overview
Highlights / General details You will visit one of Bohemia's most beautiful chateaus - Konopiste, where you can admire its fascinating collection of historical furniture, sculptures, paintings, tapestries and countless hunting trophies exhibited there. The Konopiste Castle was originally founded as a gothic fortress guarding a nearby town of Benesov. Being founded at the end of the 13th century, it was built at the beginning of the 14th century, following the model of French castles called "castles". The utterly most important and famous owner of the Konopiste Castle was the archduke Franz Ferdinand d' Este, a successor to the Austro-Hungarian throne whose assassination in Sarajevo in 1914 became a pretext of the World War I. This man bought the Konopiste domain in 1887 from the Lobkowitzs family and converted it into a magnificent seat of a Heir. The Chambers were richly decorated with the collections inherited from the Modena's archdukes of d'Este and numerous hunting trophies hanging on the walls as silent witnesses of Franz Ferdinand´s hunting passion. Konopiste has a large park and garden area.
