Long Description:
Oboru v lese Malejove nad vsí Liboc zrídil roku 1530 král Ferdinand I., který ji pozdeji nechal obehnat zdí. Tehdy byla ješte zvána proste Nová královská obora. Podle plánu králova mladšího syna rakouského arcivévody Ferdinanda Tyrolského, dlouholetého místodržícího v Cechách pak byl v letech 1555 až 1558 postaven letohrádek Hvezda. Ferdinand Tyrolský sám položil základní kámen k letohrádku 27. cervna 1555. Stavbu provádeli nejprve Juan Maria Avostalis del Pambio a Giovanni Lucchese, po nich Hans Tirol a Bonifác Wohlmut. Dvoupatrový letohrádek na unikátním pudorysu šesticípé hvezdy (díky kterému získal své jméno) patrí do skupiny tzv. filosofických staveb a uvnitr vyniká bohatou štukovou výzdobou.

Letohrádek byl v roce 1962 zarazen na seznam národních kulturních památek. V soucasné dobe je zprístupnen verejnosti a uvnitr je umístena expozice o bitve na Bílé hore, která se odehrála nedaleko od obory.
--------------------
The surrounding game reserve was founded in 1530 King Ferdinand I. 25 years later, he commissioned his younger son Ferdinand II, Archduke of Austria to build the villa. The foundations were laid on June 27, 1555 by the Archduke alone, and construction of the villa was completed three years later. The villa is in the shape of a six-pointed star, from where it and the game reserve gained their shared name.

In 1962, the villa was listed as a national cultural monument, which it remains today. An exhibition on the Battle of White Mountain, which took place nearby, is now on display inside the villa which is open to the public.
