Castle palace (basic tour)

The interiors of the palace make you feel like you have a large Neo-Gothic illusory painting of individual halls and lounges. Inside the interior, we present the life of the Dauns and the family of Baron Haas. Unmistakable imitation imitates wall cladding with wood, stones or stucco. The rooms are equipped with stylish, historic furniture, reflecting the different periods of the styles. On the second floor there is an extensive zoological collection of domestic and exotic animals and trophies, founded by the brothers Vladimir and Otakar of Daun.

On the ground floor of the sala terrena in five halls you will see a unique atypical collection of illuminators made of colored sheet metal. Baron George Haas was a great lover of animals and he set up a private zoo at the castle (one of the largest in the continent). He also behaved a large number of dogs, and he left his favorite. You will see a collection of his stuffed pets in II. floor. The Daunes were transformed into a romantic Neo-Gothic mansion. Romanticism was also subjected to the castle forest park over the castle, where they built a large number of sailboats and lookout for the castle itself.
