Overview

A private collection of the Lobkowiczes' fine art and musical memorabilia is housed in one of the family's many castles, 25km north of Prague. It is not to be confused with the gallery of another branch of the family in the town of Melnik. This is one of the best Old Master collections in the country, featuring the elder Brueghel, Rubens, Cranach the Elder, Velazquez, Canaletto, etc. It can be viewed only with a guide. Also on display is fine furniture, silver, porcelain, family portraits and the like. The family were great patrons of music and of Beethoven in particular. Autographed manuscripts and other memorabilia of Beethoven, W.A. Mozart, Handel and others can also be seen here.
