The first written mention of the city dates from the year 1219, Jan Žizka burnt a monastery here, famous family Šternberk lived here, nearby, on Konopiště castel than Franz Ferdinand d'Este. All of this and much more is well known Benešov, in Central Bohemia.
We have already visited Kamenice in Central Bohemia. It was on the occasion of a visit to Stirin Chateau. There are however two chateaus in Kamenice. The other has the same name as the town – Kamenice.
A small village 50 kilometers of Prague surprises anyone who does not know a thing about it. On a small area in beautiful landscape near Benesov you might find right two chateaus – the new one and the old one.
Kladno. When people hear the name of this city, most of them think of a forty year old man with earthy humor, who conquered the world with his art with a hockey stick. We visited Kladno during the time of the interruption of NHL season, in time when Jaromír Jágr plays in Kladno. It is evident that the city lived hockey.
Landscape, known from the film Little Village, in which Rudolf Hrušínský as doctor enjoyed a fairytale land, is breathtaking. Really. Also villages that fit into it, they can mesmerize his appearance, but also which way people live there. One such village is Neveklov.
The most visiting is one that is closer to Prague. This is true about every castle and chateau. Konopiště is one of the places, for which Praguer´s have a passion. Brides and grooms have said there so gentle like on a conveyor belt and homely tourist has a problem to do a proper photo. On Konopiště just live.
