Lobkowicz Events Management
Perched on a slope above the River Elbe in the charming, historic town of Roudnice nad Labem, just north of Prague on the way to Dresden, Roudnice Castle, with its various estate buildings and impressive gardens, served as the Princely and Ducal seat of the noble Lobkowicz family. Their storied history in this 250-room baroque residence spans four centuries - from the 1603 wedding of Zdeněk Popel, 1st Prince Lobkowicz (1568-1628) to Polyxena Pernštejn (1566-1642) until the confiscation by the Nazis in 1941 and then again by the Communists after they took power in 1948.
The property is comprised of the main castle building, the monastery, the church, the riding hall and stables, and an administrative building, all set on approximately 80,000 square meters of land. Also located on the grounds is the Roudnice Lobkowicz Winery, which has been cultivating the family vineyards and producing award-wining wines for over 400 years.
The Lobkowicz Winery sells its premium wines directly from the wine cellars at Roudnice Castle. For more information, please see Roudnice Lobkowicz Winery.
The Lobkowicz Collections is delighted to collaborate in the upcoming exhibition, "The Age of Discovery" (13 November - 30 June 2014) at the Náprstek Museum.
The Collections has loaned an early 17th century portrait and four pilgrims' crosses, each decorated with various ornaments, inlays, and inscriptions. The crosses themselves have never been on public display before.
"The Age of Discovery" exhibition will feature artifacts and records from the European expedition to The New World, Africa, and the Orient, shedding light on fascinating historical events and scientific discoveries. Find out more here.
