The chateau is situated about twenty kilometres west of Brno. Originally, it was a medieval Gothic castle used for defence, but it is a beautiful and elegant chateau today. You can have a history lesson with your children in the chateau, where visitors will see some Renaissance elements (such as sgraffitos on the facade), as well as the Baroque and the Classicist styles (for example, the paintings in the chapel).
We have mentioned an anti-nuclear shelter and you will indeed see one during the tour. Alternatively, you may choose the other circuit and visit the chapel and the decorated chambers. The permanent exhibition of toys includes items dating from the 1950s to the present day.
There is something going on here in all seasons: knightly tournaments, Easter performances, an evening tour in costumes or the popular Garlic Fest in September – an “aromatic” festival celebrating garlic in all its forms.
You will also feel at ease in the beautiful garden, and when enjoying the wonderful view of the confluence of the Bobrava River with the Říčanský Stream!
