Velké Březno Chateau

The chateau of Velke Brezno was built in the late Empire style by Count Karel Chotek in 1842-1845. Count Chotek, the supreme burgrave of the Czech Kingdom, contributed to the development of Bohemia. Around 1900, the chateau was reconstructed in Neo-Renaissance style. The chateau is surrounded by a landscape park with 130 species of precious trees and bushes. The current installation of the chateau’s interior is original and illustrates the activities of the Choteks. Sophia Chotek, the wife of Franz Ferdinand d’Este, the successor of the Austrian throne, with whom she was assassinated in Sarajevo in 1914, came from this family. There are concerts, seasonal exhibitions and also wedding ceremonials arranged in the chateau on a regular basis.
