This new publication describes the history and origins of Troja Château, a Baroque architectural complex in Prague of Europe-wide importance. For the first time ever, the chateau’s architecture and exceptional decorations, as well as the social connections of its builder, Count Václav Vojtěch of Šternberk, are placed within the context of late-17th-century Central European art. Richly illustrated and with user-friendly diagrams, the book is intended as a practical guide to the building for both the general public as well as the academic community.
