Jabkenice - Bedřich (Frederick) Smetana Monument

Game-keeper´s house in Jabkenice is situated near to vast preserve with marvellous nature sceneries. Originally, it was a seat of forest office of Thurn-Taxis Princes. Since 1875, there was working here Joseph Schwarz, Frederick Smetana´s son-in-law, husband of his daugther Sophia. Just in the middle of this family, deaf Smetana experienced his last years of his life, and most of his most important musical works were composed here.
