Chateau Jablonná n/Vltavou - cultural heritage , reg. č. 10982/2-63
The first mention of Jablonná nad Vltavou dates from 1318 when a water fortress was situated on the site of the present Chateau. In 1729, Count Josef Jan Kinský purchased Jablonná and rebuilt it into a Baroque chateau.
Chateau Jablonná nad Vltavou is located in the middle of 3,5-hectare park with two ponds, in the beautiful countryside between the Vltava and Sázava rivers, near Slapy Dam.
Major reconstruction of the Chateau was carried out in 1873 when it was purchased by the Prague banker JUDr. Johann Schebek. The Chateau was converted in Noe-Classical style. The Neo-Classical paster-cast iron columns and balcony with wrought iron railings and gilded flowers have all survived to the present day and have been completely restored. The park is decorated with original sculptures by Moldner, the German sculptor whose works are also on display in the park of the famous Golf Konopiště Resort.
In the 1920s, bank director, Dr. Rudolf Vodička, became the last owner of the Chateau. During the Second World War, this part of the Central Bohemian Region became a military area, and was used for the manoeuvres of SS units. The Gestapo stored its archives in the Chateau building.
From the 1960s, the building was owned by the National Committee of the Capital City of Prague, which established a retirement home there. After the Velvet Revolution , the Chateau was returned to the descendants of Dr. Rudolf Vodička.
In 2005, the building was purchased by the ROYAL interier company which, after complete reconstruction, opened it to the public in the Autumn of 2009. Credit should be given to the company, as the Chateau has since been removed from the list of endangered cultural monuments. During the reconstruction, maximum emphasis was placed on preserving the original character of the building and adjacent park. The entire reconstruction, interior design and implementation were taken care of by the ROYAL interier company, which has already been operating on the Czech market for 23 years.
