History of Troja Palace

 

The original structure of Troja Palace was designed by Burgundian architect Jean Baptista Mathey and constructed in 1679-1691 by the orders of Count Sternberg. The construction of Troja Palace was briefly cancelled due to plague epidemic in 1685. Architectural style is shaped by design of the French and Italian villas. Much of the interior survived to modern times. Beautiful decorations cover all buildings including stables of the palace. Today Troja Palace houses a gallery of the 19th century Czech art.
