The Lobkowicz Palace

Found in the Prague Castle complex, the  Lobkowicz Palace was constructed in the 16th Century, in a renaissance style. Having suffered a fire in 1541, it was reconstructed in a more austere Early Baroque style which can be seen today.

During the Second World War, the family's fortunes began to change, and the palace was seized for the first time. At the end of the war they recovered it, but during the communist regime, all their possessions, including the palace, was once again confiscated.

In 2002 the  Lobkowicz palace was once again returned to the family, and following significant reconstruction in 2007, it opened its doors to the public to exhibit its history and collections to visitors.
