About:

The Konopiste castle is located 44 km south-east of Prague (60 min driving). Castle was originally founded as a gothic fortress guarding a nearby town of Benesov. Being founded at the end of the 13th century by Tobias of Benesov, it was built at the beginning of the 14th century, following the model of french castles called “castels”.

The first touch to a medieval structure of the castle was made in the 15th century by Jiri (George) of Sternberk and was followed by Hodejovsky family in the 17th century, who converted the castle into a renaissance mansion. However, the most significant alteration took place in the 18th when members of the Vrtba family rebuilt the castle into a baroque residence.

The utterly most important and famous owner of the Konopiste Castle was the archduke Fratisek (Franz) Ferdinand d’Este, a successor to the Austro-Hungarian throne whose assassination in Sarajevo in 1914 became a pretext of the the World War I. This man bought the Konopiste domain in 1887 from the Lobkowitzs family and converted it into a magnificent seat of a Heir.

The Chambers were richly decorated with the collections inherited from the Modena’s archdukes of d’Este and numerous hunting trophies hanging on the walls as silent witnesses of Franz Ferdinand´s hunting passion.

Wedding ceremony 

Ceremony can be arranged basically anywhere at the chateau.

Wedding reception

The three main common spaces of the chateau (The main hall, the breakfast room and the library) are large enough to cater for large event, preserving at the same time a very intimate, domestic scale and lots of cozy corners.

The main building dates back to XVI centur, with 3 wings and 2 towers, and it is surrounded by a water moat.

Plan of the owners are more ambitious – they imagine a large series of different gardens, taking up step by step all the outdoor spaces between tge various buildings, each garden with itw own feeling and atmosphere. Main models and inspirations are the wonderful gardens of England, created through the XX century around old country houses and manors with endless fantasy and invention and the „potagers“ or ornamental kitchen gardens of France, where vegetables are grown for their beauty too, mixed with flowers.

Starting from 2003 czech and international artists have been invited to stay at Trebesice, in individua lor group residences, for a few weeks or some months, to create artworks and site specific installations. The owners believe contemporary art os the best way to bring back new life and new sense to old buildings which have been made empty by recent history and aimless by the changes in agricultural technologies.
