The real pearl among the chateaus of the Northern Bohemia is the Ploskovice chateau near Litoměřice. It was built between 1720 and 1730 by Anna Marie Františka of Toscany, then wife of the last descendant of the famous Italian noble family – Medici. The original summer residence was rebuilt in the late Baroque style by Kilián Ignác Dietzenhofer. At the beginning of the 19th century, the chateau became the property of the Habsburg family. The emperors Ferdinand V and Franz Joseph I both used Ploskovice as their summer residence.
After Czechoslovakia was established in 1918, it became the summer seat of the Foreign Ministry. It was often visited by Edvard Beneš and his wife. We recommend the tour round the castle and the walk through its gardens with Baroque style fountain and grotto (artificial cave) to any visitor of the Central Bohemian Uplands.
