Lobkowicz Palace, neighbouring the former Institute for Noblewomen, can be found at the very end of the Prague Castle complex.
The construction of the palace was initiated in the early 16th century by Wolf Krajíř of Krajk, and completed by the noble House of Pernštejn. However, it only became the property of the Lobkowicz Family a hundred years later. A great amount of the Family members lived here one after another, but throughout the years, the palace was confiscated from the Family several times. It was fully returned in 2002, and in 2007, following expensive reconstructions and restorations, the palace was opened as a private museum of the House of Lobkowicz, which became an artistic rarity among the European collections.
It allows visitors to view Bohemian and European history through the history of the House of Lobkowicz. Besides rare objects of art, there are also personal possessions of the Family, and an audio guide narrated by the actual members of the Lobkowicz Family guides the visitors through the extensive exhibition.
