Order Tour Code: C SWW7
In terms of its architectural appearance, the mansion at Nebilovy provides a fine example of Vienna-style Baroque palace set into the Czech landscape. Based on hitherto unknown design made by the Imperial Architect J.L. Hildebrant, it had been erected by Jakub Auguston (well-known architect living then in Pilsen) after 1706. The mansion consists of two opposite structures which used to be connected through arcaded passages enhanced with terraces. In the late 18th century, the mansion experienced a reconstruction carried out by V. Haberditz and J.I.Palliardi.
On this occasion, A. Tuvora from Prague painted the rooms, decorating the large ceremonial hall with motifs of an exotic landscape. In 1998, the front mansion was opened to the public, presenting mainly the Baroque and Rococo mobiliary. The other features of the tour include floral motifs within fine and applied arts, as well as a unique set of Venetian Murano chandeliers.
Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt (14 November 1668 – 16 November 1745) was an Italian-trained Austrian architect who designed many stately buildings and churches. Among his more important works are the palaces for Count Schönborn in Göllersdorf and the palaces for Prince Eugene of Savoy, the two Belvedere palaces in Vienna, 1713-1723, Schloßhof, 1729, and Rackeve.
