NileGuide Expert tip:
Although Troja Chateau is outside of the city center, it is easy to get to. Ride the metro to Nádraží Holešovice, line-C, then take a tram to the stop "Trojska."
- Situated outside of the city center, near the Prague Zoo, Troja Chateau (Trojsky zamek) is a 17th century Baroque masterpiece. Particularly renowned is the villa's garden staircase, lined with statuesque depictions of the clash between Greek gods and their Titan predecessors. The Italian influence became most evident during the second reconstruction (after the first was interrupted by a plague epidemic). At this time, the gorgeous interior became what it is today. Although it had to undergo renovations after 1989, it now houses 19th century paintings, plus rare maps and books. Troja Chateau's vibrant exterior and stunning interior together make this a beautiful place to visit.
