Hotel Obora Kinský

The pleasant and relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant is enhanced by the central fireplace and original, period horse prints lining the walls. Since recently, the Kinský dal Borgo family has taken back the management of the hotel and restaurant, effectively integrating it within the other locations and services offered by the Kinský dal Borgo company.

The Kinský family owns over 8.000 hectares of forests, which are used in forestry and hunting. Within this holding is the very special and historical Obora Game Park, which is a part of the NATURA 2000 area. This area consists of over 600 ha of stunning 100-years-old forests, fenced in order to preserve a unique population of Mufflon and Dama Dama.
This unique place and historic natural environment enjoys careful maintenance and it’s not uncommon to catch extraordinary gold medal trophies.
This year, the “Borne Wildlife Estates Label Award” was awarded to the Kinský family's hunting grounds, taking good care of biodiversity and its natural environment. (see www.wildlife-estates.eu).

The Kinský family roots go deep into the history of Czech Republic and houses have always been a special interest and a favorite activity. In the mid-17 century the family began to breed horses for hunting and for Austrian Emperor’s cavalry. At the end of 1800’s Octavian Count Kinský founded his own breed: the Kinský horse.

Octavian Kinsky was an excellent rider and a passionate hunter. He was the first one to introduce the steeplechase win then Czechoslovakia; the first-ever steeplechase in this country was held in the fields and forests surrounding the family Ostrov stables. Octavian Kinský was also a founding member of the “Velka Pardubicka”, a famous national horse race that still takes place every year.  A testimony of the family passion for horses and steeplechasing is the chateau collection of paintings (among them are rare pieces from the Hamilton brothers).

A unique exposition of the history of the Kinský family and horse breeding in Bohemia can be visited in the near-by Karlova Koruna Chateau.  Today the Ostrov stables are rented by the company Hřebčín Kněžičký (see www.hrebcin-knezicky.cz)
