Jemniště is a small village in Central Bohemia between Vlašim and Benešov, about 40 km southeast of Prague.  Jemniště is a Baroque chateau built according to a design by F.M. Kaňka for František Adam of Trautmansdorf at the beginning of the 18th century.  After a 1754 fire, it was renovated in the Rococo style.  Complemented by an English park, the historical interiors feature period furnishings and collections from the 17th through the 19th century (the chateau salons, the dancing hall, the knights‘ halls with Gothic decorations).  The Chapel of St. Joseph features decorations by V.V. Reiner. F.A. Scheffler, and M.B. Braun.  The castle complex includes stables.
