Following the Thirty Years War the Renaissance chateau served as the summer residence of the Hradec Králové bishops. The adapted chateau courtyard and the museum concert hall (the former chateau chapel with original paintings) serve for concert performances. The Roman Hall and Chinese Room with paintings by Antonín Machek in the Town Office are used for weddings and ceremonial occasions. The chateau includes gardens that were changed into a park in 1903 by architect Thomayer of Prague. Preserved today are the original roses, rare trees such as tulip-tree, yellow cedar, and others. Beyond the park walls is a linden alley, at the end of which stands the Chapel of St. John Nepomuk. The Town Museum with a gallery and exhibition spaces is housed in three wings of the chateau.
