Ep12- Welcome to My Palace: PRAGUE's Noble Family

The story is something out of a fairy tale: Typical American family, happily settled in Boston, gets called upon to collect their ancestors’ royal fortune in Europe. For the Lobkowicz clan, this is was indeed real life.  

Today, William Lobkowicz Jr. shares what it’s like to call a 40,000 square-foot castle home. His family has been a part of Czech nobility for 1000 years. All of their possessions were lost to the Nazi’s- and then again to communists. In Prague, the beautiful Lobkowicz Palace that looms over the city is one of 13 restored castles, now hosting a collection of paintings, musical scores (including Beethoven’s original sheet music) and old firearms. William's personal account on the family's history and palace, which otherwise would have just been another building, brings Prague even more to life.
