In 1720, Frantisek Adam Trauttmansdorff entrusted the renowned Czech architect F. M. Kanka with the construction of a château corresponding to his social status, that of a prominent member of the aristocracy. The château is a typical seat of a nobleman from the height of the Baroque period, decorated by prominent artists such as M. B. Braun, V. V. Reiner and F. A. Scheffler.
In 1868, the Jemniste estate was purchased by Zdenek, Count of Sternberg, and the Sternberg family inhabited the château until 1943. Following the uneasy years of WWII and the ensuing period, the Jemniste château returned to the hands of the Sternberg family in 1995.
The tour leads through the interiors in a period style featuring collections of the Sternberg family, and ends in the St. Joseph Chapel. The historical interiors are available for wedding ceremonies, concerts, gala events, birthday parties and other social occasions.
The château is surrounded by a picturesque English-style park, offering rare species of trees and plants for admiration at the rockery or on the moor, or an occasion for a walk around several ponds with waterfowl. The château coffee house is a suitable resting place where you may enjoy a good cup of tea or coffee.
The château is found approximately 50 km south of Prague, and 10 km from Benesov in the direction of Vlasim. The grounds include a parking site for both cars and coaches.
Recent additions to the services offered are night-time tours and winter tours for groups booked in advance.
