Dětenice Castle, Jičín District, Czech Republic

The Dětenice Castle is a well preserved Gothic style castle in the town of Dětenice. The place was first mentioned as a fortress in 1404.

By the end of the 16th century it was rebuilt in the Renaissance style by the Křinecký family from Ronov. When the Dětenice castle was bought by Jan Kristián, Count Clam-Gallas, it was renovated in the late Baroque style. During the period of 1762-65 Zachariáš Fiegert, architect, designed the present look of the building.

At present, the castle offers well-preserved Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque frescos, wall paintings and rococo and classic stucco decorations. In the park you can come across well-preserved sculptures from the period of classic Baroque.
