Troja Chateau

During the early fall in Prague, Vinobrani, or wine festivals, are held for several weeks in different locations in the city.  On the last weekend of September, my husband and I went to check one out. It was located at the Troja Palace, built in the late 1600s for a royal count.

In the sculptured chateau gardens, local vineyards set up booths where this year's wines could be tasted and sold. The Czech wines,  mostly white varieties, were very different from California wines.

Just walking around the gardens and looking at the beautiful palace made the day special for me.


Today the chateau is owned by the city of Prague and houses an art gallery. We didn't take the time that day to go through the museum. That's on our bucket list of things to do.



The area around the original riding stables was set up for tasting wine while watching entertainment. They had singers/dancers from the Medieval Era as well as the Roaring Twenties.








As we sipped our wine and listened to the lively entertainers, we could look up into the vineyard covered hills behind the chateau. It was a marvelous way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
