Karlslund Manor

Örebro, Sweden

Originally, in the 16th century, the site of the Manor House and gardens was used for royal farm buildings and Karlslund was mainly concerned with agriculture. The present Karlslund Manor House was built between 1804 and 1809 by Christian Günther. In 1819 a later owner, Carl Anckarsvärd, had the manor house rebuilt and altered to the appearance we know today. The architect behind this work was the famous Carl Christopher Gjörwell, who also furnished the upper storey of the manor house and laid out the beautiful park. Gjörwell also had the Stora Salongen (Grand Saloon) decorated with rare French panorama wallpapers. These show the most important ports of France and were hand-printed c. 1800. They are among the oldest rolled wallpapers extant in Sweden.

There are several cultural history displays and museums at Karlslund like the Statare Museum, power station (1897) and old mill. Today Karlslund Manor House is used as a restaurant and conference centre. Here one can book Sunday lunches, Christmas dinners, and so on. In the summer there is also a pleasant café on the terrace.

Krivoklát Castle

Křivoklát Castle was founded in the 12th century, belonging to the kings of Bohemia. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.

The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into a harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During the 19th century, the family of Fürstenberg became the owners of the castle and had it reconstructed after a fire in 1826.

Today the castle serves as a museum, tourist destination and place for theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
