Lobkowicz Palace, Prague

4.5
Home to the same aristocratic family for nearly four centuries, Lobkowicz Palace is part of Prague's World Heritage castle complex. Confiscated by the Nazis and the Communists in the 1940s, this 16th-century palace finally returned to its rightful owners in 2002. Since then, the building has been home to a private museum housing priceless paintings by Piranesi, Canaletto, and Brueghel the Elder. The museum's prized possessions also include original musical scores written by Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven, who dedicated three symphonies to Joseph Franz Maximilian, the seventh prince Lobkowicz. An audio guide, dictated by current owner William Lobkowicz, brings to life dozens of personal items displayed here, including Lobkowicz family portraits and photo albums.

  • On our visit to Prague we made a reservation for a noon concert at this palace. Three very professional women each on their instrument offered us an hour of musical pleasure. Then we make the visit to the palace museum that treasures a wonderful collection of great masters of painting and a sad story about unpleasant moments that passed through the family that owns the castle. Today it is one of the most beautiful places to see in the Prague Castle area, with impeccable cleanliness and conservation and great attention in all its areas. Definitely a place to recommend. Also his excellent concerts.

I'll tell you right away: both the palace and the audio guide are amazing! Probably the best tour in Prague and the best audio guide I've ever heard. The story is conducted slowly and calmly, a lot of interesting facts are given, attention is paid to all sorts of details. If you initially look at the filling of the halls - Lobkichi (or Lobkovits) collected art objects - and listen about the famous representatives of the genus (for example, it was for Polixena, who married zdenek from the lobkovitz family, brought to Prague the first In the second part you are looking at the halls themselves. Some pieces of the story are voiced by the Lobkovics themselves (in Russian audio guide their voices are still heard in the back...
