The aristocracy: Beginning of the end

Educational tour of "The Aristocracy: The beginning of the end" offers a glimpse into the life and fate of the last owners of the estate of Veltrusy. They were Karel and Livie Chotek, whom were the last heirs and were invited by Arnošt Chotek, the last member of the Veltrusy family line, in 1921. In these authentic spaces, on the concrete examples of Counts Chotek, you will get to know the noble environment, the role of nobility in state administration or its lifestyle.

The program takes you from the early 18th century, when Choteks began their very successful clerical career until the 20th century, which meant the end of nobility and loss of property.
