The Lobkowicz Collections |
Lobkowicz Events Management
The Lobkowicz Collections is the oldest, largest and most intact private collection of art and architecture in the Czech Republic. Since restitution of our property in the 1990s, our mission has been to conserve, restore, and make available to the public these world-renowned works of art, rare books, manuscripts, cultural resources and castles.
The organization is comprised of several key divisions: Lobkowicz Collections o.p.s., which oversees the care, exhibition and study of objects in The Collections; Lobkowicz Events Management, which handles the organization and implementation of special events, private functions and corporate travel programs, both at the properties and throughout the country; the American Friends for the Preservation of Czech Culture (AFPCC), which assists Lobkowicz Collections o.p.s. with fundraising support; and the Lobkowicz family, which supports and guides the direction of the organization as a whole.
Together these divisions strive to create unique cultural, educational, travel and entertainment experiences for art and music lovers, history-enthusiasts, students, scholars and visitors of all ages.
Whether planning a museum visit or scholarly project, a corporate excursion or your wedding, we encourage you to come, get to know us.

Architecture in the Work of Peter Paul Rubens and Václav Hollar, the new book exhibition at Lobkowicz Palace, will open on 30 November and will introduce two attractive books focusing on architecture as presented by the most distinguished Baroque artists.
Exhibited will be a first edition (1622) of the work entitled Pallazi di Genova, published in Antwerp by the prominent Flemish Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640). The book presents detailed engravings of facades, cross sections and plans of Renaissance palaces and villas from Genoa, Italy. The second exhibited book, Castella et praetoria nobilium Brabantiae, was published by the historiographer Jacques le Roy (1633–1719). Also a first edition, it was published in Antwerp in 1694. The work is composed of more than 200 engravings and etchings.
Architecture in the Work of Peter Paul Rubens and Václav Hollar will run through 30 May 2013.
