The largest Czech horse riding school and the second largest horse riding school in the Central Europe (right after the Spanish Riding School in Vienna). The building of Riding School in Světce combines elements of an industrial architecture with the imagine of an aristocratic building. The Riding School is equipped with a very remarkable roof with a so-called lantern – a prismatic skylight, which brings the most lighting to the Riding Hall. In 1861, the whole building had to be simply just a revelation. The layout was completely subordinate to the purpose – the riding hall contained a forge, warehouses, coal store, blacksmith´s apartment, manure removal areas (shores directly to the wagons), lodges, wardrobes and living rooms with toilets, which were situated upstairs. The horse riding hall was able to accommodate 24 horses. The Riding School provided a unique backdrop for horses, visitors and riders. The most beautiful room is the princely lodge, from where was, as in the past, the most beautiful view of the Riding Hall. Original owner: General Alfred Windischgrätz, son of doctor of law Alfred II Windischgrätz. The construction of the building took 2 years from 1858 to 1860. After his father´s death Alfred II stopped his activities with construction of buildings. The horse riding school was completed but the chateau was only half done. Horse riding school: the length of the building – 60.2 m, the width – 52 m, the total height – 26.3 m, the enclosed space – 33.715 cubic metres, the hall itself 20 x 40 m (hinged roof – wooden frame arches), height 23 m the using of the slope into which the contruction is established a demanding technical architecture – Romanesque and Gothic style. 17.12.1981 was the building removed by the Ministry of Culture from the list of monuments of cultural heritage. 7.3.1991 the building was returned back in the list of monuments of cultural heritage.
