Chateau Brandýs nad Labem

12. 8. 2014

Originally a medieval castle dating back to the early 14th century, expanded during the Gothic era, later adapted in the Renaissance style for Ferdinand I.

It subsequently underwent a Baroque reconstruction and, later yet, was “re-gothicized” for the Grand Dukes of Tuscany. 

The castle is currently undergoing gradual renovation. The courtyard facade features unique graffiti with hunting themes. The interiors commemorate a stay by Emperor Karl von Habsburg and military subjects of the 19th century. Part of the holdings of the District Museum Prague – East is exhibited here.
