Cernin Palace - Cerninsky Palace Tips (4)

CZERNIN PALACE

Czernin Palace is a very large building near "Our lady of Loreto' Church.
Unfortunately, as it is used as the offices of Foreign Affairs. It is now visited by presidents, ministers of foreign affairs and other prominent people from all over the world, but NOT the general public.
The Czernin Palace is the largest of the baroque palaces of Prague.
The Palace belonged to the noble family Czernin of Chudenice, one of the oldest noble families in Bohemia. The Palace was built by an Italian architect in 1668, then was used as a famous picture gallery.
The Palace has quite a history, starting with being looted by the French in 1742, bombed by the Prussians, used as a shelter for the poor, used as Barracks, and used for the gala ball on the occasion of the coronation of Leopold II.

Czernin Palace is open only on special occasions.

How to get there:
Take trams no. 22 or 23 and take off at the Pohorelec stop. Then walk up the Loretanska street.

Hradcany: Cernin palace

This big palace was built in 1668-1688 for Count Humprecht Jan Cernin. It really is huge and, compared to the Loreto on the other side of the street, a bit ugly. Like its neighbour it was built to impress, but in another way than the Loreto. This is architecture of power. It's now the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Cernin Palace (Cerninsky palac)

This early Baroque palace, now the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was built by Francesco Caratti in 1669-87. Its garden is open to the public from time to time in the summer months.
My friends and I (she studies political sciences) were making jokes that this building could have been a potential traineeship place!! When are we applying? :P
