Binder, Filip ; Šedivá Koldinská, Marie (advisor) ; Županič, Jan (referee)
This thesis deals with selected foreign journeys of Czech and Austrian nobility in the second half of the 18th and at the beginning 19th centuries and their influences and impacts. In addition to the general passages devoted to the travelling of nobility from the 16th to the middle of the 18th centuries and to the expeditions carried out during the period under review, attention is paid to five persons who have been divided into three groups based on their activities influenced by experience gained in foreign countries.

The next chapter is concerned with the reconstruction of Hluboká Castle inspired by romantic historicism, which began shortly after Prince's return from the second journey and which created from the castle one of the most majestic family seats of nobility in the Habsburg Monarchy. The study deals with the conception of the castle as a "family museum", symbolism that can be seen in this "museum", other building projects influenced by Schwarzenberg's Hluboká and the relation between early capitalism and historicism in connection with Johann Adolf's entrepreneurial activities, too. It is also one of the tasks to describe all these facts in the broader context of the 19th century, whose circumstances caused the development of romanticism and historicism.
