The New Chateau in Kostelec nad Orlicí, near Hradec Králové, will definitely capture your attention. It was built in the Empire style in 1829-1833 for Earl Josef Kinský, and the Kinský Family lived there until 1948. After 1948, there were several agricultural institutions that resided in the chateau, which had drastic impacts on the condition of the castle. In 1992, the property was returned to the Kinský Family as part of the restitution process, and both the interior and exterior underwent extensive reconstruction. The preserved contents in the Empire style, together with other objects that were originally owned by the family, were gradually restored and today you can visit the exhibition entitled Life in Biedermeier. The tour includes the Mirror Hall with great acoustics, where concerts take place regularly. The owner, Earl František Kinský, guides tours himself on special occasions. On the first floor, there is the Kinský Gallery, where there are exhibitions as part of the Cultural Summer at the Chateau. The chateau is surrounded by a large landscape park which provides peace and quiet all year round.
