Jicin

this Resource was last updated on 12 Jul 02

The early Baroque chateau, which is one of the largest chateau structures in Bohemia, is situated along the South side of Jicin square. The Smiricti had the original chateau built in 1608, but the structure was substantially damaged by a gun powder explosion in 1620. Albrech of Wallenstein had a residence of his massive estate built here in 1623. A. Spezza, G. B. Pieroni and N. Sebregondi participated in the construction, situated along the South side of Jicin square. Later, when Jicin belonged to the Trautmannsdorf family, the chateau was renovated in Classicist style at the turn of the 18th century. From 1936, the chateau belongs to the property of the town of Jicin and today serves in part as a museum.
