Museum of Forestry, Hunting and Fishing – Ohrada Castle

About us

Ohrada Castle was built in the 1708–1713 in the Baroque style according to the project of architect P. I. Bayer for Prince A. F. Schwarzenberg as a hunting lodge, which was supposed to serve as a place for organisation of hunts and ostentatious hunting celebrations.

The hunting museum at Ohrada was established already in 1842 when extensive collections of hunting trophies and stuffed animals were concentrated there, and it ranks among our oldest museums ever.

The museum is located on the bank of the Munický rybník (pond) with a zoological garden in the vicinity.
