Castle Gardens Stirin


In the second half of the 18th century, when rebuilding Štiřín in the baroque style, its then owner decided to found a park and erect several greenhouses.

However, the park’s current landscape composition was established as late as at the end of the 19th century when its overall arrangement and dendrological structure was considerably affected by the founder of the Průhonice Park, Count Arnošt Emanuel Silva-Tarouca, and an important representative of the Austrian Dendrological Society, Camillo Schneider.

A systematic and professional renewal of the then 12-hectare chateau park started in 1985. It was so successful that the park currently belongs among the best historical gardens and parks in the Czech Republic. It is also a prime example of sensitive installation of new elements in the original composition in a way that does not reduce its historical value.
