    Take a tour of Konopiste Castle in Czech Republic – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

    Located approximately thirty miles outside of Prague is the luxurious Baroque chateau of Konopiste.

    The chateau was initially constructed as a Gothic fortress, then remodeled with Renaissance modifications, and finally repaired after damages in Baroque style.

    Famous as the residence of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria during his assassination, the so called bullet that triggered World War One is exhibited in the castle's gallery. (Frah-nz)

    Visitors can tour the Rose Garden and a greenhouse which showcase statues from the Italian Renaissance era.

    The history of Konopiste is nothing short of fascinating, and its regal majesty is sure to leave visitors charmed.
