One of the most remarkable architectural monuments to be found in South Bohemia is the Schwarzenberg Tomb in the beautiful English park on the bank of Svět fish pond. It was commissioned by princess Eleonora of Schwarzenberg and her husband Jan Adolf II. The original project by Friedrich Schmidt was adapted by the princely builder Damasius Deworetzky. The tomb itself was built together with the complicated drainage system under ground level between 1874 and 1877. The Neo-Gothic two-storeyed tomb is in the shape of a regular octagon. In the chapel of God the Redeemer there is a Neo-Gothic altar from white sandstone and Istrian marble. In the vault of the tomb there are 26 coffins with the remains of members of the Schwarzenberg family. For its Romantic environment and excellent acoustics the chapel is frequently used for various concerts.
