Casanova at the castle

Tour Circuit II includes the interiors on the first floor of the chateau, i.e. Waldstein museum with historical collections and the Billiards wing which focuses on some real former residents of the castle, especially the most famous one: Giacomo Casanova, a globe-trotter and widely known lover.
