The Summer Pavilion at Mitrovskych

A Freeman named Antonín Arnošt Mitrovský built this Villa at the finish of the eighteenth century adjacent to the Augustinian cloister, in the flamboyant, fashionable baroque style of Louis The Sixteenth. It functioned as an outdoor gambling venue for the Mitrovský Counts.
A plethora of activities used to occur in this Villa (1 of its’ events – a grand ball – was attended by the French Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte). The hall at the centre was adorned with a mural fresco displaying a landscape rich in plant and tree motives.
