Humprecht Chateau



Humprecht has been looking down on Sobotka and the surrounding landscape from a small hill for over 300 years now, recollecting its complicated history.
Carlo Luragho was commissioned in 1666 to build this piece of architecture for Humprecht Jan Černín of Chudenice but just before it was finished the building had been struck by lightning and burnt down; it was completed in 1680. This building was designed as a hunting lodge for the Italian wife of Humprecht Jan Černín who had divorced him even before she had to enjoy the lodge. The hunting lodge started to delapidate, its crescent reminds us of oriental architecture.


I wish you a wonderful trip!
