The 16th century palace of Dětenice had several consecutive owners. In the 1980s, it was used as a orphanage. Now it is a property of Mr and Mrs Ondracek from Prague, who have rebuilt it completely. The photo shows the rear of the palace with a view of a garden. In the front, there is an emblem of Malta knights, one of the past owners, made of flowers. Inside, there is a huge collections of antlers, historic furniture, but also a painting and a pick from the official start of construction of a local railroad.
