  • Summary

The oldest predecessor to the present-day chateau was an early Gothic castle built around 1250. In the Middle Ages the castle was alternately an aristocratic property and a site of royal administration.

In 1562 King Ferdinand the Ist sold Hluboka together with inheritance rights to the Lords of Hradec who changed the castle into a Renaissance stately home.

A century later the Hluboka estate was bought off Jan Adolf I of Schwarzenberg, a noted European diplomat and the founder of the family branch which had stayed in South Bohemia for almost three hundred years.

In the latter half of the 19th century Prince Jan Adolf II and his wife Eleonora ordered another reconstruction, this time in the Romantic style.

In 1840 the demolition of the castle proceeded from the back wing towards the entrance gate and, in the course of time, its Baroque style gradually changed into the picturesque style of Tudor Gothic.

The reconstruction was completed in 1871. Hluboka is without a doubt one of the most beautiful castles in Bohemia.
