Dobríš Palace

Dobříš, Czech Republic

Dobříš Baroque and Rococo chateau in Central Bohemia near Prague is certainly worth a visit. You can admire its rich ornamental decoration, English park and French garden. If you wish, you can spend the night right in the chateau, as it offers accommodation in a four-star hotel and also has rooms for weddings and family celebrations.  The chateau is only about 50 kilometres from Prague, near the town of Příbram and the Brdy Mountains. The present appearance of the chateau in Dobříš dates from the years 1745-1765, when it was renovated by Jindřich Pavel Mansfeld. The Colloredo-Mannsfeld family lived here until 1942, when the chateau was expropriated by Nazi Germany. After World War II, the chateau was confiscated again, this time by the Czechoslovak State, and was used for social purposes. In 1998 the chateau and its French garden and English park were returned to the Colloredo-Mannsfeld family.

Inside the chateau, you can visit 11 rooms furnished in Baroque, Rococo and Classicist style and take a look inside the luxurious Mirror Hall that is used for concerts or sumptuous wedding ceremonies. A romantic atmosphere is guaranteed! Visitors also usually like to take a walk in the French garden, with floral ornamentation and carefully maintained hedges evoking an atmosphere of bygone times.

Closing the main attraction of it this castle - the French Garden - at 5PM, right in the middle of the peak season, when the sunset is at 8:30PM is rather ridiculous. They refused to sell the tickets to us at 4:15PM, meaning that if you really want to visit this castle and see its beautiful French Garden, you only can do it before the lunchtime ?. Unbelievable.

Only the gardens were open. The restaurant was also closed. No indication of where to park.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
