The Hunting Lodge of the Heir to the Throne – Neo-Gothic Chateau Konopiště was used as the summer residence of the heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand d´Este, whose assassination in Sarajevo triggered the First World War. The archduke was a passionate hunter, and a fascinating exhibition of his hunting trophies is on display at the chateau. The collection of historical weapons and arms is the largest of its kind in the Czech Republic. A game preserve and a wonderful park with abundant exotic and indigenous tree species border the chateau.
The chateau Konopiste is a great target for a Tailor-made Tour or one day tour.
