The oldest surviving written document of Nelahozeves’s existence dates back to 1352. The village has a three-winged Renaissance château of the Italian castello type, with arcades in the yard and grafitti, and is owned by the knightly family Lobkowicz. Nelahozeves is the birthplace of composer Antonín Dvořák. His birth house now harbours the exhibition of his life and work. The château is a popular wedding place and day trip destination too.
