It is a very nice little place to visit -- unfortunately the power was out - restricting our activities. The buildings reminded us of our native country and especially Amsterdam

Beautiful caslte absolutely worth a visit. Visiting is only possible with guides tours, which as in our case may turn out to be only in Czech, but the rather detailed handout and the beautiful interiors make it worth it even if you don't speek Czech.

It's a small family chateau and we did the family home, not the big galleries. The guide was in Slovac but I loved it, seeing how people actually lived. It's a shame that more isn't available of the home, but I thought it was fabulous.

It doesn't matter if you know Czech Republic's history or not. Chateau & its history is definitely interesting & preserved nicely. You can take some wonderful pictures here & there's a lot from old times to observe & understand.
