Full description

Join us on a half-day trip from Prague to Konopiste Castle, a National Cultural Monument in the heart of Bohemia. For your comfort, we offer skip-the-line tickets and a private transport with a pickup and drop-off directly at your Prague accommodation. Explore nooks and crannies of Konopiste Castle with an Expert Guide and immerse yourself in Czech history and heritage!

Choose the 4-hour option to visit the Konopiste Castle. The castle is best known as the last residence of Franz Ferdinand of Austria, whose assasination in Sarajevo triggered World War I. On your visit, you will join a Licensed Castle Guide on a tour of the apartments of the north or the south wing of the castle. Each route offers fascinating history, beautiful decor and many surprises!

In the Baroque-style south wing you can find beautiful spaces like the Rose Room, which is adorned with a pink ceiling and white stucco, Rococo-style furnishings from the 1800s, expensive paintings, a hunting corridor filled with thousands of hunting trophies, and a historical bathroom. Alternatively, you can explore the north wing, which is the oldest part of the castle. It houses the largest collection of armoury in the Czech lands, including mediaeval knight armors, swords, spears and hunting rifles and pistols. Another point of interest is the castle chapel, which features a 16th century vaulted ceiling painted blue with gold stars to represent the night sky and a beautiful neo-Gothic altar.

After the guided tour, you will have free time to explore the castle grounds. Marvel at the majestic Konopiste Castle with its French fortress-style architecture as you take a stroll through the English-style castle park. Enjoy the terraces, Italian Renaissance statues, a large lake and a Baroque-style rose garden. It is a beautiful countryside estate with many wild animals, such as the colourful peacocks, deers and a bear in the fortification moat.
