Sychrov Castle

The history of the place where the castle is located dates back to the 15th century. In that time there was a fortress under the ownership of the Czech royal chamber. In 16th century a stone manor was built on its place and later, in 1690-1693, a medium-size baroque castle. Nowadays, it is unique example of Neo-Gothic castle from second half of 19th century. The castle boasts a collection of around 250 portraits of the Rohans, related families, and French kings. It is the largest collection of French portrait paintings in Central Europe. Sychrov hosts unique glass paintings by Jan Zachariáš Quast. The English park has an area of 23 hectares. The older, classical park was remodeled into the romantic style. Since botany was a hobby of the castle owner, the park received a lot of attention: there are rich dendrological and botanical collections.
