Long Description:

The Roundel music pavilion was one of the last steps of the grandiose rebuilding of the old Gothic Jindrichuv Hradec castle into a representative Renaissance chateau residence.

The Roundel's project, founded by Adam II of Hradec, is work of Italian architect Baltazare Maggi and Roundel's master builder was Giovanni Mario Faconi. The construction of the Roundel was finished in the years of 1591–1596. From the very beginning of its existence, this garden pavilion was intended for noble entertainment and representations. In the summer months, the interior, lavishly decorated in the style of mannerism, held balls, concerts and received noble guests. For instance, in the summer of 1814 they welcomed and hosted Maria Theresa’s father, Emperor Charles VI.


The Castle and Chateau Jindrichuv Hradec stands in the town of the same name. It was founded on a cliff above the Nežárka river and the lake Vajgar. The area of the Castle and Chateau Jindrichuv Hradec is, after the Prague Castle and Ceský Krumlov Chateau, the third largest in the Czech Republic. It has over 320 rooms for which opening one needs 500 keys. Throughout the halls and chambers are 10 000 objects of art.
