The early Gothic Konopiště castle was established at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. The original medieval stronghold with its seven towers, two drawbridges, and its strong battlements was converted into a château during the Baroque Period. The owner of Konopiště was the successor to the Austrian throne, Ferdinand d’Este (assassinated on 28.6.1914 in Sarajevo), who was the initiator of the modifications in the style of historical Romanticism at the end of the 19th century. Among the several unique displays, the collection of weapons, the collection of approximately 300,000 hunting trophies, and the largest European collection on the theme of St. George all particularly stand out.
