Description

Konopiste, only one hour by car from Prague, is one of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic. It was founded around the year 1300, but received its neo-Gothic façade as late as in the 1890s from Archduke Franz Ferdinand d'Este, its last and best known owner, successor to the Austro-Hungarian throne, whose June 1914 assassination in Sarajevo set off the First World War.

On this tour your guide will pick you up from your hotel and then drive you the one hour journey to the small town of  Konopiste. On arrival you will climb the small wooded hill to the castle itself where you will take a guided tour of the chateau. Since Ferdinand d'Este was an obsessive hunter, Konopiste houses an over-the-top collection of dead animal trophies and an armoury of historical hunting weapons. 

Konopiste is set in English-style wooded grounds, including a lake, rose garden and statuary, giving you the perfect opportunity for a relaxing walk after the castle tour.

The price includes return transport by private car and entrance to and a tour of the castle.
