The classicist palace of Kozen is considered to be one of the most-visited historical monuments of Western Bohemia - and rightly so. At the end of the 18th century it was built as a ground-floor, four-winged edifice with a rectangular courtyard under the supervision of the builder Vaclav Haberditz. According to the design of I. Palliardi the palace complex was expanded by a further two pairs of buildings: the chapel and the opposite riding school, horse stables and the opposite footman’s quarters. Decoration of the palace’s interior was predominantly influenced by Antonin Tuvor, the Prague painter and interior designer, who adorned all of the rooms in the “al secco” technique. The original furniture constitute unique examples of arts and crafts of the eras of rococo and classicism. The palace is surrounded by a large-scale and valuable landscaped garden.
