The Central Bohemian Museum in Roztoky

In Roztoky, discover a well-equipped museum and prehistoric dwellings marked by the famous Liechtensteins and a notable Czech artist.

The castle premises reflect the late Renaissance and the era when Roztoky near Prague was a cherished retreat for the city’s industrialists. Explore the former barn beside the castle, offering a journey from the late Stone Age to the recent past at Zdenka Braunerová’s Studio.

The Central Bohemian Museum in Roztoky near Prague features architecturally valuable premises with year-round exhibitions, educational programs, and diverse events. Explore two permanent exhibitions in the castle and its sculpture-filled park through guided tours.

The exhibit “Life in the Resort” explores the origins of the first resorts for the urban middle class at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Meanwhile, “Manor Administration” recreates the atmosphere of the estate manager’s private spaces during the Lichtenstein era.

  • Tip for you: Explore another permanent exhibition in Zdenka Braunerová’s Studio at the Brauner Mill complex. The artist’s life and work, intimately tied to Roztoky, unfold through her original paintings and insights into her encounters with Czech and European cultural figures.

Since 2022, the museum features the Archevita exhibition – In the Footsteps of Ages, situated in the former barn next to the castle. It spans from prehistory to the early Middle Ages, showcasing 1:1 scale replicas of prehistoric dwellings and archaeological finds. Enhanced with computer perspectives and holographic projections, the exhibit also offers playful and educational elements for younger visitors through information kiosks.

Where to head next?

Explore the nearby baroque Veltrusy Château, take a pleasant stroll along the Vltava River, or ascend above Roztoky for a breathtaking view of the Vltava Valley. The enchanting panorama from Levý Hradec, a Premyslid stronghold and the cradle of Czech Christianity, is a must-see. Don’t miss the chance to quench your thirst at the Únětice Brewery, accessible from Roztoky through the romantic Tichý Valley.
