The Karlova Koruna Chateau was built as a summer residence in 1721-1723 by Count František Ferdinand Kinský – the highest chancellor and highest gamekeeper in the Czech Kingdom, according to the plan of one of the foremost Baroque builders, Jan Santini Aichel. Construction of the chateau took only three years. As a tribute and memorial to the coronation of Emperor Charles VI and his subsequent visits to the chateau in Chlumec nad Cidlinou the owner named it “Karlova Koruna.” The structure itself has a unique plan in the shape of a royal crown.
