Piccolominiové and Courlands

Historical interiors from the 17th and 18th centuries, especially the Thirty Years War period, when Náchod was owned by the Imperial commander Ottavio Piccolomini. Rich period furnishings inthe state rooms of the princely residence of Piccolomini display a set of Brussels tapestries, a collection of floral and hunting still lifes, ancestral portrait gallery, some of the earliest library books etc. The exhibition is thematically related to the end of the 18th and the early 19th century, when the Náchod estate was owned by Peter Biron, Duke of Courland and Sagan, and his daughter Wilhelmine, known as "Her Ladyship," in the celebrated novel Grandmother by Božena Němcová. Visitors here can see the interiors of nine rooms with mostly restored furniture in the style of Classicism, Empire and Biedermeier. Only in June and August.
