Nelahozeves Castle was built for Florian Griesbeck von Griesbach (1504-1588), the private secretary and close adviser to Emperor Ferdinand I. Taking over 60 years to build, the family’s financial difficulties forced the sale of the encumbered estate to Polyxena, 1st Princess Lobkowicz.


A day spent at Nelahozeves Castle brings a lifetime of memories. A quick 30-minute train ride from Prague’s Masaryk train station transports happy visitors far from the congested, tourist laden streets of Prague to the charming and historic renaissance splendor of the Lobkowicz country estate. Here visitors will be treated to an authentic taste of Bohemian holiday traditions.
