A Virtual Tour of Lobkowicz Palace and its Collections
Presented by William Rudolf Lobkowicz
Once one of Bohemia’s most prominent noble families, the Lobkowiczes were forced to flee their homeland twice under both the Nazi and Communist regimes. Join William Rudolf Lobkowicz on a virtual tour through the Lobkowicz Palace Museum as he shares the story of his family’s return to their native country. Highlights from the Lobkowicz Collections include world-famous paintings by Breuegel, Canaletto and Velazquez, as well as hand-annotated manuscripts by Mozart and Beethoven.
