6 July 2019: Kladruby Imperial Stud Farm added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List

In 1563, the Holy Roman Emperor Maxmillian II of Habsburg founded a stud farm in Kladruby nad Labem which his successor, Emperor Rudolph II of Habsburg, granted a charter in 1579, elevating it to the status of Imperial Court Stud Farm. The stud farm was taken over by the state in 1918 when Czechoslovakia gained independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
