Game Park Hvězda and villa Hvězda

The game park was established in 1535 by the king Ferdinand I at the place of the former forest in Liboc. In June 1555 his son Archduke Ferdinand of Tyrol built here a Renaissance summer palace called Star Summer Palace. The four stored building was named the Star due to its hexagram platform and belongs to the most interesting buildings of the renaissance architecture in our country.

At present there is located the Memorial of the National Literature removed here from Strahov and part of the exposition is devoted to the former exhibitions of Alois Jirásek and Mikoláš Aleš. In the ground floor of this reconstructed building there is placed the permanent exhibition about the past and present of palace Hvězda and the attention is encouraged with the great model of the fight at White Mountain placed in the basement. At the main gate to the game park (next to the hotel Obora in Liboc Street) there is situated the statue of Jan Roháč z Dubé from A. Sopr, that was earlier placed in front of the Old Town Hall and in front of the Summer Palace Hvězda there is placed the statue of the Hussite woman from J. Jiříkovský.
