Konopiste Castle became famous as the last residence of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, whose assassination in Sarajevo triggered World War I. Stop by to the castle's museum to see the bullet that killed him, which was fired by Gavrilo Princip. Take a guided tour to see Ferdinand's residential rooms, a shooting hall with moving targets (he was an avid hunter), and a garden with Italian Renaissance statues and greenhouses. Explore the third-largest European collection of armory and medieval weapons, as well as a large collection of antlers.

  • At Konopiště in the last 4 years, we drove quite often. Just because we went through after the rose garden and had coffee at a coffee shop in the garden. At the castle we went through all of the circuits. I really liked us and we learned a lot of things in our history.

  • Located in just an hour ride from Prague Konopiste castle is definitely an attraction for the history lovers. The tremendous number of weapons and hunting trophies are presented in the castle museum. ...  more »
  • Take the train to the central railway station in Prague and travel to the city of Benešov. The central tower of the Castle Konopiste is visible from afar, but to go from the station to several kilometers. But it is possible you may come closer and take a bus. In the Castle, everyone will find something to their liking. Can go on an excursion into the inner chambers of the Castle. Or you can just walk in the beautiful Castle Park, admire the sculptures and peacocks, observe the bears in a small Zoo. Then you can go have lunch in a local restaurant. Prices very humane. Come you will not regret.

  • Lovecke zamecek ve kterem je vice uvnitr jak v 10-ti jinych zamcich. Jednozancne doporucuji. Aspon ted uz nekteri anglani vi ze Franc Ferdinand neni jen kapela.
  • Lovely Castle and Grounds... take a walk around the lake it's magic. This area is nicer in April than July as the temperature can stop you from exploring.
  • Krasny a udrzovany zamek,prohlidka take zajimava. Prilehly park a jezero urcite stoji za prozkoumani.
  • Beautiful chateau with historic exhibit, nice landscape. Popular destination for a trip.
