The Charles Crown Castle was built in the years 1721 –1723 by order of Count František Ferdinand Kinský. The construction was commissioned by the well-known architect Jan Blažej Santini-Aichel. The castle got its name in honor of Emperor Charles VI, who visited the local castle. In 1943 the castle burned down. After 1948, the castle was owned by the Czechoslovak state. The chateau was reconstructed and reopened to the public only after 1969. In 1992, restitution took place and the property was returned to the hands of the original owners – Kinský.

Lock composition

The castle consists of a central cylinder with two floors and three single-storey wings with a square floor plan. In the northern part, between the wings, Santini slid an open staircase to the first floor. The shape of the castle is similar to the crown, hence its name.

Park

Adjacent to the castle is a large park. Three main paths lead through the park from three gates lined with alleys, which complements the composition of the castle.

Chapel

Next to the chateau is the chapel of the Annunciation, which is probably also the work of the builder Santini-Aichel.

Orangery

The Empire orangery located in the park was added in the 19th century by the builder Koch.
