HLUBOKÁ NAD VLTAVOU
Chateau Hluboka was founded as a guarding castle in the 13th century by the Czech kings. It was gradually held by many noble families. Amongst others it was the Pernstejn family who in 1490 founded nearby the second largest pond in our country – Bezdrev. In the 16th century Hluboka was owned by the lords of Hradec, who reconstructed the gothic castle into a renaissance chateau. In 1661 Hluboka was bought by its last owners, the Schwarzenbergs. They reconstructed the chateau twice, first in the 18th century in the Baroque style. After their second reconstruction in the middle of the 19th century Hluboka got its present appearance of a romantic new gothic residence.
In the chateau winter riding school you can find the Southbohemian Gallery with an important and famous collection of Southbohemian gothic art and also a collection of Europian and Czech art from the 16th – the 19th centuries. By the chateau you can also visit a beautiful romantic park from the 19th century, the building of which was inspired by English landscape parks. Below the Chateu there is the town of Hluboka nad Vltavou and not far from there, it is also possible to visit a Hunting lodge from the 18th century (today a museum of forestry, gamekeeping and fishery) and a nearby ZOO.
