On this trip you will see Konopiště Castle, a very famous castle in the Czech Republic with an attractive English park and rose garden. There are also bears in the Castle area.
A 10-minute walk takes you from the car park below the Castle to the East Tower entrance. The first courtyard is entered through a Baroque doorway by F. M. Kaňka, with a sculpture by M. B. Braun von Braun (1725).
Konopiště Castle is situated 50 km south-east of Prague near the district town of Benešov. It was originally a Gothic Castle (13th-14th century) with a square structure in French style, with four towers. It was rebuilt in Late Gothic style in the early 16th century and enlarged at the beginning of the 17th century by the building of a Renaissance palace. Some Baroque features were added in the 18th century.
Near the Castle is an English-style park with a rose garden containing statuary brought from Italy.
