TŘEBOň chateau

Třeboň Chateau    -    pearl in the petal of water rose

The last great love of Petr Vok of  Rožmberk was Třeboň and it became the centre of political, social and cultural life in the Czech lands in his lifetime

The WINTER Residence of Schwarzenbergs  in the year 1895 - 1922

 

The originally small manor of 1366 in the centre of the town served the Rožmberks for occasional visits to Třeboň.
After a fire in the town in 1562, the ruined castle was gradually rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau at the command of Vilém of Rožmberk. After his death in 1602, the last Rožmberk ruler, his brother Petr Vok, moved into Třeboň. In 1660, the Schwarzenbergs bought the war impoverished Třeboň and they owned it until 1947.
Visitors can pass through the Rožmberk Renaissance Interiors, featuring an alchemist's laboratory, Kunstkammer or Fraucimor (women’s quarters).
On the first floor the more soberly furnished private rooms of the Schwarzenbergs can be seen.
The third guided tour presents the castle stables, dog kitchen and a system of underground passageways of the city, called the Casemates.
The Třeboň House of Nature presents the PLA and biosphere reserve Třeboňsko (UNESCO) interactively.
