   The Count Václav A. Chotek had this manor built about around 1716. About 1764 the originally short Gothic wings were extended by Rudolf Chotek who also had the interiors of the manor newly furnished. The utility buildings were built in 1804; together with the northern wings of the manor they close the courtyard of honor. The manor is surrounded by a large park with several Empirical and Romantic decorative buildings.
   The interiors contain, apart from the furniture, paintings and fine glass chandeliers, also collections of china and a number of valuable objects of artistic craftsmanship. The rooms which were furnished in the period of Rococo stand out with their beauty.
