Touch the History at Pálffy Palace Restaurant!

The palace was rebuilding two houses in the years 1714-1716, designed by Francis Maxmilina Kanka for Count Jan Josef von Wallenstein, in whose possession the houses themselves in the year 1709 Palace later acquired Furstenberg and in 1881 it bought Palffy of Erdod. Today is this building one of the buildings of the Prague Conservatory and at the local concert hall are held a concerts of graduated students.

 

History and circumstances: 

In 1995, when editing in the northern parts of the palace in connection with the extensive reconstruction of the Palace gardens under Prague Castle discovered in the eastern section of the perimeter wall of masonry blocks with smaller relic of the net. Due to the construction method used is not entirely clear whether it is a relic from the time the walls of the newly planted Lesser in 1257, of an earlier Romanesque masonry. 

Plot palace adjacent to the line of the former city walls from the inside (the foundations of the wall sections were later captured by the Wallenstein Palace courtyard). At the north end of the Palace wall was also unveiled a relic of a small gate with neprofilovaným lining, so it is not clear whether this way led earlier entry into the walled city - in this case could present Waldstein street races occur until later, when there existed Písecká gate (because this way went to the village on the sands at the bottom of today's square at Klar). Older houses were apparently damaged during the Hussite wars and again were hit with fire Lesser Town and Prague Castle in the 1541

In the years 1580-1592 there was a major Renaissance construction. Two separate houses not only joined in 1709 by Count Jan Josef von Wallenstein, who then conducted an extensive Baroque style. 

For subsequent partial repair is worth mentioning the establishment of a classicist fountain in the courtyard. In 1881, Eduard Palffy Palace bought from Erdodu. Already in 1902 the state sold the building to ship archive and mounted police station. 

 

After 1948 

Since 1950, the building was owned by the Ministry of Information and later cultures (eg. Lived here some workplaces Heritage Institute). Now it houses one of the branches of the Prague Conservatory. 

 

Rod Pálffy 

Pálffyové are relatively young noble family, who came to prominence in the early reign of the Habsburgs in Hungary in the first half of the 16th century. In the battle of Mohacs in 1526, died along with the Czech and Hungarian King Louis Jagiello also many members of the high clergy and the Hungarian nobility. Among them i Lőrinc (Lawrence) Palffy. His descendants after the onset of the Habsburgs to the Hungarian throne added to the side of the new ruler, and Hapsburgs remained faithful until the dissolution of Austria-Hungary. 

Pálffyové were originally yeoman gender. First received baronial title in the 16th and 17th centuries was promoted rod between the counts and in the 19th century the two family branches right to use the title of prince. 

Genealogy is very complicated, because the genus richly ramified. 

In the 18th century there was a double major division of the property. During the first division in 1707, the family split into two major branches - the older, the founder became Count Miklós József (Joseph Nicholas) Palffy (1657-1732) and his wife Catherine Elizabeth, born Weichsovou-, and younger, founded by Nicholas' brother Earl János (John) Bernard Palffy (1663-1751) and his wife Anna Teresa, born Coborovou. 

In 1735 saw the second division of the property. The result was the division of family agreement older branch of the family on three separate lines that created grandsons Nicholas Joseph Pálffyho. The founder of Malacca line became Santa Claus Josef Palffy (1710 - 1773) and his wife Anna Sidonia, born Althanovou. The founder Stupavsky line was Lipot István (Stephen Leopold) Palffy (1716 - 1773) with his wife Maria Josepha, born Wallenstein and founder červenokamenské line of the family was Rudolf József Palffy (1719-1768) and his wife Mary Eleanor, born Kounicova. The names of these three lines are derived from the place that was their main residence. 

Červenokamenská line family resided in the castle Cerveny Kamen, who was the first family wealth and status Pálffy headquarters of the genus he held until 1945 Pálffyové acquired it in 1583 and it genus permanently inhabited since 1588, when its reconstruction was completed on representative family residence. Castle vyženil significant Hungarian soldier and politician Nicholas Palffy (1552 - 1600), when he married the heiress of the property to Mary Magdalene Fugger. The last owner of the red stone was Karol Maria, Count Palffy (1905 - 1992), who left the castle together with his mother in late March, 1945.
