Šilheřovice, Czechia (Czech Republic)

This time we are going to visit Šilheřovice in Czech Republic. This village is located only a few kilometers away from Polish-Czech border. Our goal is to visit the castle with the surrounding park. We have nice, sunny spring day - perfect to stroll the park paths and to make a few interesting shots.

A little bit of history

In Šilheřovice, in the place of a former Renaissance fortress, the Eichendorff family built the chateau in the romantic style in the late eighteenth century, which was later rebuilt in pseudo-baroque style. Around the palace was founded large English-style park with rare trees from many parts of the world. It is now one of the largest 18-hole golf courses in the Czech Republic. In the palace are organized various social events and cultural activities. In the park, by the lake (which was unfortunately empty while our visit) is located nice hunting castle, dating from the XVIII century and once belonging to the Rothschild family.
