Home of the Senate

The long and interesting history of this magnificent palace began in 1623 when Count Albrecht von Wallenstein (much to the annoyance of the other nobles) decided to glorify himself by building a structure to rival the mighty Prague castle. Centuries past and then in WWII the palace fell into the hands of Czechoslovakia before being renovated and made into a government building. Today this is the home of the Czech Senate. The palace is also used for other events like concerts, which require a large amount of space. Roam the grounds for free on any day and admire the architecture, the bird sanctuary, the peacocks, and the unique and slightly creepy rock wall structure.

Utrip Tips

*The building is closed to the public while the senate is in session. Still, feel free to roam the gardens on any day. On most weekends, you can go inside and see the home of the Czech Senate.
