Chateau Jemčina

Zámek Jemčina

Chateau Jemčina

Original stud farm was built by count Jan Petr Slavata in 1673.  After extinction of the Slavata family by the sword, the Hradec domain was acquired by Heřman Jakub Černín in 1691, and the stud farm was acquired with it.  In the following years, the Černín family built up the hunting chateau, whose construction started in 1747.  Directly in the chateau, there was built a new chapel devoted to St. John of Nepomuk. The chapel is 19 m high and its fresco decoration represents the most valuable part of the chateau. In 1772, two statues of St.  Sebastian and St. Thecla by the driveway were made. These statues were created as a waiver of respect, because Jemčina was not affected by a horse plague. The chateau got completely new look after 1790, when Count Rudolf Jan Černín decided to organise hunts in Jemčina.  Regarding this purpose it was necessary to adapt the chateau and its surroundings having an area of 50 km2. Extensive costs were necessary specifically because of preparation of the woods around the chateau for fox hunting. Nobility from all corners of the Habsburg Monarchy was gathering in Jemčina especially during autumnal months.
Chateau Jemčina offers a sightseeing tour where you will be introduced to the history of Jemčina. You will also find out more information on fox hunting, history of missile troops in the castle, you will also visit stables and see a unique wooden construction of the riding school, court of honour, chateau chapel, bunker of the command post of missile troops and exposition of hunting trophies. More information can be found in the photogallery.
