Chateau Buchlovice                            official site

Château Buchlovice lies not far awBuchloviceay from the majestic stonework of Buchlov Castle and belongs to the most prominent noble seats in the region of the Czech Republic. The quality of its architecture, its numerous collections, its distinguished owners, and its important place in the history of the last years of the Hapsburg monarchy all make it a place, of which the significance overreaches the borders of Czech territory. Construction of the château was begun a short time before the year 1700 by a rich count of a noble pedigree Jan Dětřich Petřvaldský, who intended to present the place as a gallant gift to his wife Anežka Eleonora of the Italian house of Collona. It might have been for this reason, why Italy-oriented plans in the style of so called villa rustica were ordered at one of the prominent architects in Vienna of that time. The result of this several-times-altered architectural concept was the purest example of an Italian Baroque villa in the Central European region. In the adjacent premises the construction of a magnificent winter garden, of which the beauty captivated already the visiting contemporaries, was started right from the beginning. In the course of time the villa, figuring as a counterpart to the residential Buchlov Castle, became the chief seat of Petřvaldský and later also Berchtold families who begun to gather here some really rare collections.
