The last resting place of Albrecht of Wallenstein
Mnichovo Hradiště Castle is one of our rarest castles. Originally a Renaissance chateau, Václav Budovec from Budova had it built here. After the Battle of White Mountain, however, his property, including the castle, passed to Albrecht of Wallenstein. The chateau was owned by the Wallensteins until 1946. At the end of the 17th century, the chateau acquired its current Baroque appearance. Now the castle is a state and we can visit three sightseeing tours.
Road to the castle
On the way from the parking lot to the castle we can not miss the striking buildings. It is a church of the Three Kings (simple building on the left) from the 17th century and the chapel of St. Anny (decorated object on the right). The chapel was built by Countess Marie Markéta Valdštejnová in the 18th century and houses the remains of Albrecht of Valdštejn and his wife.
The castle is a beautiful baroque building. We went through the first sightseeing tour, which is definitely worth a visit. Stricter security measures apply in the lock – not only is photography prohibited, but all things must be left in lockers.
Adjacent to the castle is a castle park founded in the 17th century. You can admire ornamental flower beds with roses or exotic woods. The park has an area of 7 hectares.
The park also includes a Baroque garden pavilion called Salla terena, stables and riding stables.
