Kvasiny Chateau was preceded by a late Renaissance fortress founded by Bedřich of Vlkanov after the year 1608. The Baroque chateau was built here at the beginning of the 18th century, when the property was in the hands of the Order of the Discalded Carmelites. The last major conversion, which was executed in the mid-19th century, paid tribute to the Classicist style. František Karel Janeček bought the estate in 1928 and founded the JAWA automobile factory in the vicinity of the chateau. The property was nationalized after World War II and the factory was handed over to the Škoda brand. Only the devastated chateau and forests were returned to the Janeček family in restitution. The chateau is presently being looked after by Soňa Klímová – Janečková, František Karel’s granddaughter. A wonderful world of puppets, puppetry and home theatre is awaiting you here, which will arguably not be enjoyed just by the children. A period-correct parlour has been equipped with the items rescued from the chateau fixtures. Upon prior arrangement, you can also visit the St. Antonín Paduánský Chapel with a historical organ, as well as the Hunting Hall. A gallery at the chateau has been accessible since 2011, too, where interesting exhibitions are staged regularly. These are traditionally represented by the Bethlehem-themed chateau expositions at the advent time. A 10-hectare park with many rare trees surrounding the estate can be conveniently strolled in. It does not come as much of a surprise either that Chateau Sunday events with vintage cars and motorcycles are being organised here, and not just the JAWA brand-oriented ones. Come and visit Kvasiny also in July and enter the Middle Ages world as part of the Půta Chateau Festival.
