Description

Visit the castle and grounds of Konopiste, a beautiful Bohemian chateau that sits among a wooded forest on the edge of a dark blue lake. Explore the manor's extravagant interior, which was the final home of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, whose assassination triggered the start of World War I.

Your tour departs from central Prague, where you board a vehicle that shuttles you into the Czech countryside. After a short and comfortable drive, arrive at Konopiste to begin your tour. Stroll through the lush green gardens that contain many Italian Renaissance statues and greenhouses that boast a wide variety of plant life.

Skip the lines and move inside the castle to observe the residential rooms of Franz Ferdinand and witness his large collection of antlers from his hunting expeditions. See a fascinating collection of historical furniture, sculptures, paintings, tapestries, and countless hunting trophies exhibited here. Learn revealing details about the royal family who called this mansion home from your knowledgeable guide. As your tour comes to an end, head back to Prague and enjoy views of the tranquil forest along your way.

I didn't actually get to go on this tour, was emailed the day before to say they didn't have enough people, could I do it the next day... No as I was flying home... They said I could do another one that went from 9 till 5.. I agreed, and then spent 6hours (3 each way) on a mini bus to see one castle and a midevil square... And didn't get back till 8pm. Exhausting. 20 min only free time at tourist spot, then half hour at deserted place, better to have had proper time at tourist place. Guide was well informed. But not enough to see to justify length of travel.

Driver picked us up at hotel the stopped at Gray Line kiosk, where we waited 20 minutes before switching to a different driver - not very efficient. This new driver smelled horrible and made the whole ride unpleasant.

This is a beautiful castle (Chateau !) just outside Prague.It has a stunning collection of weapons and armour . The tour was very informative but only covered about a third of the castle.There were other tours available at the castle for an extra cost.
