Kostelec Chateau from the garden

Kostelec chateau, originally a medieval castle of Smiricky family, was rebuilt in renaissance style after the fire in 1549 by Italian architect Ulrico Aostalli. After the Thirty Years' War the chateau became a property of the Lichtensteins and was partially rebuilt in Baroque style by Josef Jäger in 1759. Now it's owned by the forestry university.

Kostelec nad Cernymi lesy (Kostelec above Black Forests) is a small town located in Central Bohemia about 25km south-east of Prague.

The photo was taken in June 2005 in the castle's garden and shows the northern front of the castle. My previous post shows the southern front of the Kostelec Castle.
