Lazne Kynzvart Things to Do
Metternich Castle is the main (and probably only) sight of Lazne Kynzvart. Built in the 16th century in Renaissance style, it was renovated and changed in architectural style in the 19th century. During the second half of the 20th century, the castle was completely run-down and a stain for the little spa of Lazne Kynzvart. Nowadays, however, renovations and refurbishments have done their part to make it a nice place once more.
Visiting the castle's interior is possible only in a group tour, but the guides will take a lot of time to answer all your questions and tell you about the history of the castle. You will get to know the most important rooms of the castle, all of them beautifully renovated and filled with furnitures from throughout the centuries and paintings of the Metternich family members and their relatives. Specifically interesting are a room with a collection of old weapons, among them muskets for women with hunting scenes as decoration, and the Chamber of Oddities where you can find (nearly) everything from an original Egyptian mummy to a bit of Napoleon's hair, from ship models from the American civil war to a Samurai armament.
Next to the castle is a restaurant where you can get good yet relatively expensive food.Related to:
