Introduction:

Excursion to Konopiste Medieval Castle from Prague (Private Tour) The origins of this medieval castle are shrouded in mystery, however, it is generally believed that it was first built in the 14th century. It has gone through countless renovations with the last one being the most extensive. It was Archduke Ferdinand dEste, the successor to the Hapsburg throne, that gave it this last makeover. Until his assassination in Sarajevo on 28th of June, 1914, which is generally seen as the catalyst that started WWI, he lived here with his lovely wife Sophie and their children. The castle has become a museum for the art object that he and his family collected over centuries.

Excursion to Konopiste Medieval Castle from Prague (Private Tour) The castle is located approximately one hours drive south of Prague in a pristine, woody area, near the town of Benesov. After we pick you up in your hotel, we drive to the castle park area and board your horse drawn carriage. This takes you up the castle where we have English speaking castle guides waiting for you to take you on a castle tour. During your tour you will see antique furnishings, paintings, tapestry, hunting trophies and much more. The castle bears are also waiting for your visit.
