Konopiště

Half a day trip to chateau located some 40 km from Prague will reveal both medieval as well as recent history of this country..
Contruction of the original castle on this site dates back to the 13th century, when it was build as a water fortress. The most interesting history for us is connected with late 19th century, when it was bought by the successor to an Austrian throne, Franz Ferdinand d´Este who started unique reconstruction which changed this castle into a chateau equipped according to the latest hits for eg: personal electrical elevator, hot and cold running water, flush toilet…
