The monumental castle of Nelahozeves, one of Bohemia’s finest Renaissance castles, is located in a small village of the same name, approximately 15 miles north of Prague on the Vltava (Moldau) river, known also as the birthplace of the great Czech composer, Antonín Dvořák. Nelahozeves is an example of the castello fortezza, a style deemed very modern around 1550. The castle’s builder, Florian Griesbeck von Griesbach (1504–1588), most likely employed the royal master builder, Bonifaz Wolmut, to build his Italianate Northern Mannerist castle.

The stadium was the largest in the world when first constructed, and is still the second largest sports facility worldwide after the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, seating around 220,000[1]. Construction began on a wooden stadium in 1926, which was replaced by concrete grandstands in 1932. Further construction occurred in 1948 and 1975. The playing field, surrounded by seating on all sides, is 63,500 square metres. The stadium currently serves Sparta Prague as a training centre with 8 football pitches (6 pitches of standard sizes and 2 futsal pitches).

This is a beautiful scene, lots for the eye to explore, the cenotaph with lovely coloured plants, the sunlit houses & cars leading to the inviting hills in the distance. I would love to go there. Theolfa. BTW why is the second roof white?
