Kuks Castle and Nature Tour in Prague
||Inquire About This Tour
The harmony of art and nature, this is the trip! East of Prague lays a grandiose complex of incredible lines of baroque statues. Castle Kuks was owned by count Sporck, who invited Mr. Braun (Charles Bridge in Prague) to create an exterior. Not only gardens but all wild forests around are full of excellent impressive works of art with the theme "Bethlehem", The whole sight is absolutely gorgeous!
We will go first to the complex of baroque hospic with original old Pharmacy, church and sepulchre of Sporck's family. There will be a time to stare at all the winding statues called together "VICES AND VIRTUES". JOSEFOV was founded by Emperor Josef II, and served from the beginning as a bastion, consisted of three parts, and these days we can visit underground space, in a very romantic way. After your wishes we'll make a lunch break and proceed to another historic-army monument - Bastion Dobrosov - built in 1935 - 1938. A bit contrasting with ideal Kuks?
