Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / Konopiste Castle
Konopiste Castle became famous as the last residence of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, whose assassination in Sarajevo triggered World War I. Stop by to the castle's museum to see the bullet that killed him, which was fired by Gavrilo Princip. Take a guided tour to see Ferdinand's residential rooms, a shooting hall with moving targets (he was an avid hunter), and a garden with Italian Renaissance statues and greenhouses. Explore the third-largest European collection of armory and medieval weapons, as well as a large collection of antlers. A visit to Konopiste Castle represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Benesov sightseeing planner to plot your vacation.

The place is really good for a day trip. Good place to discover history and how it changed. To know what happened to them and how beautiful where the armours. There are restaurant near. Big garden to wall around and even feed some animals. Its 30mins walk to city center to take transportation back to Prague. Great walk in the nature!
Very interesting castle to visit, it was the castle of Franz Ferdinand and his huge weapons collection is still there. You have to book a tour in advance with a guide, there are multiple tours of different parts of the castle. Tours are in Czech but there were audioguides in other languages available. No pictures allowed inside but really worth a visit. Nice grounds with garden and lake outside as well.
