Duchcov Chateau Intimate Insights

Duchov Chateau houses a museum with a collection of historic furniture, as well as the painting and portrait gallery of the Waldsteins, a Czech noble family who established themselves in the 13th century. There's even a room dedicated to Casanova, who worked as a librarian here from 1785 to 1798. The Chateau itself was founded as a fort in the 13th century, before being replaced with a one-wing Renaissance palace by the Lobkowicz family in the 16th century. Its present form comes from a 19th century reconstruction, when it received its Classicist facade and Romantic garden. The Chateau and its gardens are now state-owned, and the garden grounds serve as a public park. Entrance to the interior of the building is not permitted from November through March, but off-season visitors can still appreciate the beauty of the building’s façade and surrounding gardens.
