2 FORESTS OF THE CZECH REPUBLIC Forest Enterprise Konopiště The Czech Republic is one of the few European countries that still offers hunting possibilities to the most demanding hunters from all over the world. It is hard to imagine the amount of game that is still abundant in the middle of the beginning 21th century European countryside. Rich hunting grounds and beautiful countryside are not however, the only reason for the hunters interest. In this part of the world hunting has been developing since the Middle Ages as a special type of activity, influencing painters, sculptors, musicians and architects. It maintains old customs and traditions which have been carried over from generation to generation and have been preserved until the present. A visitor views these traditions as an extraordinary ritual that takes one back to the past. This game hunting represents more than mere entertainment. Forest Enterprise Konopiště is situated 40 kilometers south-east of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. In the Middle Ages monarchs frequently hunted in the beautiful segmented landscape, which is located nearby. Nevertheless, gamekeeping flourished during the time of the monarch Ferdinand d Este at the turn of the century. Ferdinand was a passionate hunter and he diligently recorded all his prizes. Up to his death in Sarajevo in 1914 he killed more than head of game and the collection of his trophies is still exhibited at the Konopiště chateau. A stone tablet, placed on the building, which is the Head Office of Forest Enterprise Konopiště, indicates that the majority of the prizes came from the local estates. The present high level of hunting at Forest Enterprise Konopiště is based on the tradition of the times when Ferdinand d Este established a pheasant breeding farm and a specialized stud for raising fallow deer, does and red deer. Hunters from all over the world come to attend the local hunts in pheasantries, game parks as well as in open hunting forests every hunting season. Rich hunting
3 grounds provide them with the possibility to travel 100 years back in time, and also with many other things connected with hunting. Forest Enterprise Konopiště operates different types of hunting grounds for pheasants with an acreage of hectares in which pheasants are shot per year; as well as the following deer parks Vlková with an acreage of 450 hectares and Třebenice with the acreage of 280 hectares. Mouflons and fallow deer are raised in both parks. Dybowski deer are raised in the Vlková park. Forest Enterprise Konopiště cares for the open hunting grounds with an acreage of hectares, where one can hunt roe deer and wild boar. During winter, wild boar drives are organized in these hunting grounds. It is possible to arrange accommodation in Praque, the capital of the Czech Republic or according to the hunters requirements, in modern hotels Sen Hotel, Konopiště Motel or in the Štiřín chateau, which are located close to the hunting grounds. The Štiřín chateau has been reconstructed as a hotel. It was owned before World War I by Baron Ringhofer, who used to be a frequent visitor to the Ferdinand d Estes hunting grounds. Following its conversion between 1990 and 1994, the Štiřín chateau was the as first in the Czech Republic to be admitted into the European Chateau Hotels and Restautrants Association. The English palace park surrounding the hotel has a ninehole golf course, tennis courts, equestrian facilities and an opportunity to swim in sa natural pond. During the pheasant hunting season melas are usually arranged in the Stará Myslivna Restaurant, which is situated on the hunting grounds of Forest Enterprise. The official end to each day s hunting is proclaimed in this restaurant. You may then enjoy specialities of the old Czech hunting cuisine at the festive table.
