The Ohrada Chateau - Museum of Forestry, Hunting and Fishing - is located southwest of Hluboka nad Vltavou (1 km) in the park countryside between the Munický and Zvolenovský ponds. It was built between 1708 and 1713 in Baroque style, designed by the architect P. I. Bayer for Prince Schwarzenberg as a hunting lodge, which was intended to hold a hunts and noble hunting festivals. The first hunting museum in Ohrada was established as early as in the mid-19th century (1842), when extensive collections of hunting trophies and stuffed animals were concentrated there, and it is thus among the oldest museums in the Czech Republic.
Today, the museum features a richly painted dining room with a valuable collection of historical hunting weapons, exhibition on life in the forest, forest growing, the development of mining and timber transport, numerous hunting exhibits and unique deer trophies. The tour is concluded by exhibitions documenting the development of fish farming and famous South Bohemian fishpond cultivation. The chateau is surrounded by a large game preserve, and it is located near the ZOO.
