Karlova Koruna: Santini’s Baroque jewel
On a tour of the interiors of the Baroque chateau Karlova Koruna (meaning Charles’ Crown) you will become familiar with the history of the Kinský family and horse breeding. František Ferdinand Kinský had this residence designed by the architect Jan Santini-Aichel to serve as a starting point for his popular par force hunts. Therefore you will not be surprised by the rich collection of hunting trophies in the salon. And why is the chateau called Charles’ Crown? If you guessed that it is named after Emperor Charles VI, you’re on the right track – you will learn more during the tour. The chateau is an ideal place to hold secular and church wedding ceremonies as well as other events.
