The castle site was completely in a breakdown state, at first it belonged to the depository of the City of Prague Museum and the farming part belonged to the Collective farming, it was without any maintenance after restitutions and the devastating flood in 2002 was the last straw when the whole site was flooded for 14 days up to almost 3 metres.
After takeover, it all started with a demanding paperwork, because the castle is listed among the Protected Objects all the steps must be discussed with The National Heritage Institute. The building-historical researches, restoration researches, static expertise, mycological expertise were elaborated gradually and the project activity, architectural study and handling of building permit followed. The structural stability of the buildings was seriously damaged. There were no underground services in the site. Nevertheless, we were not discouraged and started to save, clean and clear out the site, around 6,500 tons of waste, landfill and brash were taken away.
At first the breakdown state of the Chapel of Saint Anna was solved, it got a new roof with truss and the whole dome, which almost collapsed, was tied up with a reinforced concrete wreath. After finishing this demanding action the vault in the basement of the castle building collapsed, the valuable frescoes on the first floor got torn and the structural stability of the whole object was in danger. After the reparation, we arranged the whole basement, the floor was dug into the depth of one metre, the walls were treated, the drainage and insulation were carried out. The reconstruction was gradually moving to higher floors, the restorers managed to restore the frescoes, wooden lining, windows, doors, floors, and stoves to their original state. The torsos of farming buildings, which could not have been saved because of a serious disruption of the structural stability, were removed from the site, the site was dewatered and cleaned and it is getting back its respectable look which it deserves.
