The English-style castle park was founded in the 19th century and the Renaissance chateau in the 16th century. Its predecessor was a water fortress which occupied an area of 42 hectares. It belongs to the private property of the Sternberg family. In addition to rare shrubs, trees, pink and water gardens, there are many animals in the park. A sought-after place is a feast with noble white daffodils. They get their pure white color after two to three years.
The two-storey Castolovice chateau with its historically decorated interiors is considered one of the treasures of the Hradec Kralove Region.

A little less than twenty kilometers from Hradec Kralove, the region capital, there is Jaromer, the town full of history.
The town located in the Hradec Králové region on the river Kněžná is associated with several historically significant names. The author of the novel There Were Five of Them comes here - the writer Karel Poláček, the composer Jiří Rychnovský, Magdalena Dobromila Rettigová wrote the famous Domestic Cookbook here and the Kolowrat family owns and manages one of the largest Baroque complexes in Bohemia - the Kolowrat Castle.
An inconspicuous city at the foot of the Orlicke Mountains, famous for its lace technique and skilled women, whose numbers have fallen rapidly since the time of fame. Interest in lace also fell. The lace museums here will guide you through the centuries-old tradition of lace-making, and when you're lucky, you can find lace festivals or the International Lace Makers Gathering. Yes, there are two museums in Vamberk due to social changes. We will visit Vamberk at the Na Vyhlídce cottage, at the crossroads of hiking trails.
When young Count Ervin Kinsky lost his fondness of former chateau, now called Stary Zamek, he intended to built a representative residence for the family. The construction of Novy Zamek took place between the years 1829-1833. The old Baroque-style chateau with two stories is separated from the gardens by royal road. It has remained the seat of the dominion.
This regional city is an honor to its region. It is really a gem among the cities. Or, at least, it seems to be.
A small quiant town on the confluence of the Bela and the Divoka Orlice rivers boast an historic object of immense value, both historic and artistic. We talk about Castolovice Chateau and its vast English-style park, chateau animal pen, and a perserve with fallow deer. Be ready to spend an entire day on the residence of the House of Sternberk.
First time I got into Hradec was when taking pictures in the Orlicke Mountains. It fell in love with the city instantly. I get off my car, looked at the First-Republic houses facades, looked at faces of several people and I knew that I wasn’t here for the last time.
