National Stud at Kladruby nad Labem

Národní hřebčín Kladruby nad Labem

č.p. 1, 533 14 Kladruby nad Labem

The stud farm in Kladruby nad Labem is probably the oldest stud farm of its kind in the world. Already in 1579, Emperor Rudolf II promoted the stud farm to an Imperial Court and since then it has been home to the Kladruby horses, a unique Czech breed specially bred for the ceremonial purposes of the royal courts. Since 2002, the stud farm has been a national cultural heritage, including a tribal herd of the Kladruby horses in white that you can see in Kladruby. You can visit a herd of black horses in Slatiňany near Chrudim.

Extensive reconstruction was successfully completed in 2015, thanks to which the Kladruby stud farm was rebuilt to its classicist appearance and new tours and expositions were opened to visitors.
