Neo-Renaissance Palace
Zámek Studenec
Map: View

This Neo-Renaissance palace lies in Studenec near the main road and near the Church of St. John the Baptist with its cemetery, and is surrounded by a park. It was originally a stronghold with a simple Renaissance appearance built by Jan Stranik, whose father had bought Studenec in 1584. The stronghold is first mentioned in 1623 when it was bought by Albrecht of Valdstejn. It was redesigned later in the Baroque style and converted into offices and apartments for officials. Karel Berger of Bergenthal extended the stronghold in 1883 and rebuilt it, changed the interior and built a Neo-Renaissance western wing. The palace’s appearance of that time has been preserved up to now. The palace was converted into a hotel in the 1990’s but is out of operation now.
