Great Country Houses of the Czech Republic by Michael Pratt

Great Country Houses of the Czech Republic


Great Country Houses of the Czech Republic by Michael Pratt

Crowning the rolling hills of the Czech Republic and Slovakia are magnificent country houses in stone. Based on Lord Michael Pratt's seminal volume The Great Country Houses of Central Europe , The Great Country Houses of the Czech Republic and Slovakia takes an exclusive look at these regions' rarely seen treasures. Lord Pratt chronicles the dramatic histories of these regions' noble families as they constructed and remodeled castles, fortresses, and baroque manors to suit their tastes and herald their wealth and power.


Impeccably designed and lavishly illustrated, this volume allows us to wander into a part of the European heartland hitherto closed off to all but the most adventurous....Trumler's photographs of these national treasures unfailingly surprise and satisfy. Highly recommended as a visual delight and an unusual introduction to a newly opened region.
