It belongs to those places , which had their origins in medieval castle building which has essentially been  maintained despite the subsequent reconstructions. In 1997, the army ceased to use the chateau but kept the barracks and hospital in a former riding school and an adjacent part of the grounds. By March 2004 the chateau was emptied and about 30 hectares of the park was transferred to the city of Zbiroh, which it subsequently sold Gastro Žofín s.r.o., now known as Chateau Zbiroh. The company began to achieve its intention - to gradually open the castle to the public through holding of various exhibitions and cultural events.
