Thanks to many modifications, it was gradually converted into a romantic chateau with luxuriously furnished interior modified for the everyday life of the aristocracy. Konopiště Chateau was chosen by the successor to the Habsburg throne Franz Ferdinand as his seat.His assassination in Sarajevo was a pretext for the start of World War I.World War II also influenced history at Konopiště, with the SS headquarters being established here. Franz Ferdinand was a passionate hunter and collector.   

The Neo-Renaissance Průhonice castle is only partially open to the public, but it is still possible to admire its beauty, for example,in the Knight's Hall, which is a popular place for wedding ceremonies or in its courtyard.The park itself was founded in 1885 by Count Ernst Emanuel Silva-Tarouca and besides a forest with exotic tree species you will also find large open meadows and alpine flowers in its 40 km of groomed trails are available for visitors for wandering through the park.The Park is an ideal place for relaxation or a romantic stroll. The end of May, when the rhododendrons bloom, is definitely a great time to head to Průhonice Park.However, you can go at any time of year and you will always find something to see. Apart from its artistic and historical value the park is also dendrologically significant, containing about 1,600 species. The collection of rhododendrons, comprising around 8,000 units in 100 species and cultivars, is truly exceptional.Průhonice park has more than just artistic and historical significance. In recent years, the park has become a haven for numerous plant and animal species.Precious forest and meadow communities are conserved in its territory.
