Slabce - chateau

The chateau was established in the 18th century by Karel Vančura of Řehnice. In 1754-1847 it belonged to the Hildprandts of Ottenhausen, who rebuilt it into a representative rural residence. In 1847, Hugo of Nostice purchased the chateau and rebuilt it into its present form. The chateau includes the adjacent romantic landscape park.
