Long Description:

This Czechoslovak stamp issued in 1992, from series "Beauties of Our Homeland / Krásy naší vlasti", depicts Baroque Troja Chateau (Zámek Troja) in Prague' suburb district Troja.

Troja Chateau, built for Counts of Sternberg in 1679-1691, forms together with adjacent beautiful French garden the key historic and architectonic landmark of Prague's district Troja (Troy). The palace is owned by the City of Prague and hosts the 19th century Czech art collections of the City Gallery. The chateau's design has been influenced by French and Italian architecture and is mostly the work of French architect Jean Baptiste Mathey. Prior to Mathey, Domenico Orsi worked on the chateau. The palace's main halls are decorated by a magnificent baroque Habsburg's apotheosis. The palace was bought in 1922 by the Czechoslovakian state, which started a restoration in the seventies. Since this period the palace has been hosting an exhibition of Czech paintings of the 19th century: Josef Cermak, Václav Brožík, Julius Marak, Antonin Chittussi, Jan Preisler, Mikoláš Aleš.
