Besides construction and external appearance of residences belonging to the important Bohemian noble family of the Waldsteins, the essay comments on their internal arrangements, which reflect the contemporary demands for dwelling and material culture as well as the users’ personal preferences. The palace is thus not approached as an inanimate historical landmark, but as a source of understanding the everydayness of the Waldsteins in the Baroque period. The development of the residential network, together with a personal relationship of the given nobleman to the place, also reflected economical transformations and emergence of consolidated domains or the contemporary aesthetic demands. The limiting factor for development of this network was a constant shortage of funds and a limited number of artists and artisans who were able to satisfy the customer’s high demands. The count’s itinerary, the strangers’ reports and extant accounts and inventories allow reconstruction of the entire network, which reflects the development within the Waldstein family – the municipal palaces, country residences, hunting lodges or areas with the family memory.
