Visiting the chateau
The Nelahozeves Chateau holds one of the largest Czech collections of Spanish painting from the late 16th and early 17th centuries. The Lobkowicz collections contain around 1,500 paintings, including masterpieces by Brueghel, Velázquez, Rubens, Cranach, Croll and others.
From early spring until autumn, a popular music festival called Dvořák’s Musical Nelahozeves takes place at the chateau.
The festival is a celebration of the works of the composer Antonín Dvořák who was born in Nelahozeves in 1841, and lived there until the age of 13. In his childhood home, also owned by the Lobkowicz family, the National Museum operates a small museum focusing on his life.
