A Viennese palace in the Bohemian countryside

Nebílovy - a High BaroqueViennese-style palace in the Czech countryside - was first opened to the public in 1998 and since 2014 it has been possible to see the unique wallpaintings by Anton Tuvora in the ballroom.

Located in the southern part of the Plzeň Region, Nebílovy Château embodies the grandeur of a Viennese palace in a rural Bohemian setting. The Baroque château holds numerous remarkable treasures. That Nebílovy Château is an exceptional example of High Baroque Viennese architecture in Bohemia is hardly surprising, as its reconstruction was designed by the Viennese court architect Johann Lucas von Hildebrandt, who also designed Belvedere Palace in Vienna and Mirabell Palace in Salzburg. In 1706, this distinguished architect designed the Baroque reconstruction of the original château for the Imperial General and Marshal of the Republic of Venice, Count Adam Jindřich of Steinau. In later years the château was owned by the Černíns of Chudenice and the counts of Waldstein-Wartenberg, who only used it for farming purposes. The château decayed and the destruction was complete in the period it served as a grain and artificial fertiliser depot for the local agricultural cooperative. The château became state property in 1968 and work began on its gradual reconstruction. The renovated front château welcomed its first visitors in 1998.
