4 HOUR ROUND TRIP

A Renaissance chateau from the second half of the 16th century, early Baroque adjustments (by A.Porta), built on the place of a Gothic fort. A French garden, an English park. Historical interior installations since Renaissance and Baroque, throughout Classicism (the Saturn´s Hall, the library etc.) with stucco and wall painting decoration, valuable furnishings and collections. The Memorial to J.E.Purkyně. A unique collection of eight blue-and-white Dutch stoves from the 17th century.

The manor Libochovice ranks among the most outstanding early Baroque structures in the Czech Republic. It was preceded by a Gothic stronghold, rebuilt between 1560 and 1564 into a manor, which provided the foundation for the present structure. It was built between 1683 and 1690 according to the design drafted by Antonius Porta for Gundaker of Lichtenstein. The manor is preserved in a nearly genuine early Baroque condition. Also restored was the original red decoration of the peripheral walls.

Among the interior, Saturn's Hall in the southern wing is the most impressive, pervading two stories, decorated with a mighty fireplace with sculptures of high artistic value and a beautiful ceiling. Other rooms reflect, through their various decoration, the transformations of architectural styles from Baroque to the historical styles of the 19th century. In addition to the furniture of the manor, your attention will be attracted to a collection of tapestries, paintings, glass, and china. On the ground floor is located a permanent exposition of the life and works of J. E. Purkyně, the prominent Czech psychologist, who was born here in 1787.

Open every day, except of Monday.
