In the place of Sychrov a small Baroque castle was erected in 17.century. During of next two centuries the ownership of the Castle turned to several noble families. In 1820 Sychrov was bought by the family of Rohan, French aristocrats exiled by the French Revolution. The vast reconstructions they provided changed the outworn Baroque castle into what we see today – a magnificent romantic neo-gothic Chateau. The Rohans had the vision; the skills of the local woodcarvers, decorators, carpenters and glass painters made it. Special attention was paid to the Castle Park, designed in English style. The Rohans Orchid collection was one their prides, famous far beyond Bohemia. Sychrov glasshouse was among the Orchid suppliers to Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna.
