   The manor of Sychrov in the northeastern part of Bohemia belongs to our most important manor buildings in historic style. The originally Baroque manor from 1690 - 1693 was built for the knight Lamotte from Frintropp. The barons of Rohan bought the manor from the Waldsteins in 1820. The Duke Karel Alain G. Rohan had the former Baroque building increased at one floor soon afterwards and initiated further extensions.
   The most radical changes took place under Kamil Josef I. Rohan during 1847 - 1862 when the manor acquired its original pseudo-Gothic style. The work was directed especially by Josef Provot who continued in the architectonic designs of his predecessor B. Grueber.


   More than fourty halls and rooms with rich decoration are accessible in the manor. The decorations have been made by a number of Czech craftsmen of whom we shall name at least the carver Petr Bušek, author of richly carved panels of the walls and some of the ceilings. The Rohans collected an extraordinarily rich set of furnishings of which especially the paintings brought from France are of excellent quality. The portraits depict mostly the members of the Rohan family but also French nobility and even kings. The interiors of the manor are furnished by precious furniture and added by collections of artistic works and objects, especially china and glass.
