Armoury

The arsenal is located in the original 18th century buildings. At the core of the collection are the weapons collected especially during the time when the castle belonged to the family of Jankovsky of Vlašim (1612-1752). In addition to older works by prominent artisans from the end of the 16th century, the collection presents especially outstanding artisanal works of 17th-century guns (repeating guns, buttocks, air rifles, windbreakers). The arsenal also includes a selection of medieval weapons (lances / 11st century /, swords /15stst ./, fortification rifles). At the heart of the oriental part are objects mainly from the Islamic region.

The armory is characterized by its romantic arrangement, creating the illusion of the knights' chambers of medieval castles. In addition to interest in artistically crafted weapons of a representative nature, members of the Jankovský family were interested in a technically new, unusual firearms solution. Many of the gunmen and decorators also worked in the court of Emperor Rudolf II. Visitors are strongly recommended to visit this unique monument of our past.
