Visit a chateau where one of the first electric lifts, electricity and plumbing mains were installed! Walk through the sitting rooms and guest rooms, the dining room and armoury and imagine yourself for a moment in the life of the chateau before World War One. In the official factory museum of the JAWA brand, you can then admire unique exhibits, trophies and historical documents relating to the most famous of Czech motorcycles.

Konopiště Castle, founded as a Gothic fortress, was inspired by French fortresses with a symmetrical layout of the towers, several entrances and drawbridges. Thanks to many modifications, it was gradually converted into a romantic chateau with luxuriously furnished interior modified for the everyday life of the aristocracy.

Konopiště in modern history

Konopiště Chateau was chosen by the successor to the Habsburg throne Franz Ferdinand as his seat. His assassination in Sarajevo was a pretext for the start of World War One. World War Two also influenced history at Konopiště, with the SS headquarters being established here.
