Chateau Hrádek u Nechanic

6. 11. 2013

The furnishing of the chateau was to evoke stories with knights.

The Count Harrach transported a number of antiques from abroad, mainly from Italy and Austria, he bought entire portals, ceilings or complete furnishings of the rooms. His fairy dream vanished soon: in 1866 during the Prussia- Austrian war a military hospital was established in the chateau. After the Second World War the Harrachs lost the chateau by confi scation.

Why visit

Though the chateau is hidden in the forest park it looks like an ancient English manor, it was founded only in the middle of the 19th century and ranks among the youngest chateau structures in the Czech Republic. Through this structure the Count František Arnošt of Harrach fulfi lled his romantic dream of reviving the ancient glory of his aristocratic family and remembering their knightly past. The inspiration was drawn from his trips around England.
