Afterwards we will show you the village and the house where the most famous Czech classical music composer Antonín Dvořák was born.
We will start our private tour in the Nelahozeves Chateau. The chateau was founded in 1553 by Florian Gryspek of Gryspach, who served as a counsellor of the emperor Ferdinand I.. Florian used the chateau as his private residence and kept his private collections of art there. During his time the Nelahozeves chateau was a widely visited cultural center of the area. Since 1623 the chateau has been owned by the Lobkowicz noble family, which retained ownership until today. Only in the period 1950-1993 the chateau belonged to the state after the communist regime confiscated it. The current owner’s name is William Lobkowicz who was born in 1961 in Boston, Massachusetts.
Birth House of Antonín Dvořák
We will continue our private tour by walking around the Nelahozeves village and we will visit the Birth House of Antonín Dvořák. Dvořák is regarded as the greatest Czech classical music composer. He was born in Nelahozeves on 8th of September 1841 as the first of 9 children of František and Anna Dvořak. The classicist house from the end of the 18th century is currently owned by William Lobkowicz.
