Milíčov Forest

History of Milíčov Forest

Milíčov Forest was established as a game park with a pheasantry, and was part of Milíčov Grange, founded in the early 18th century. In the 19th century, Milíčov Forest gained renown as a hunting ground, made famous by the Portuguese count Ernesto Sylva Taroucca, founder of Průhonice park and son-in-law of Count Nostic. He held opulent hunts here every year, attended by the highest ranks of nobility, including Crown Prince Ferdinand d’Este. Prague Municipality purchased Milíčov Forest from a private owner in 2007. This text was produced using the brochure Milíčov Forest, issued by Prague MC Environmental Protection Dept.
