The Jezeří chateau used to be recognised as "the Baroque pearl" of the Krušné hory Mountains, but nowadays it is under constant threat of destruction. The chateau is situated at an altitude of 387 m on a rocky hill above the mining pit of the Československé armády open cast mine and there have been many discussions on its disturbed statics because of the mining.
Since the 2nd half of the 14th century there was a medieval castle, which was later rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau. In the period, when the castle was owned by the House of Lobkowitz, it was renewed in the Baroque style. Its greatest time was at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries when it was reconstructed again and became the cultural and social centre of the region. At that time many famous visitors (among them a German writer J. W. Goethe who was healed in the nearby town of Teplice, a German composer L. van Beethoven and an Italian opera singer Antonio Brizzi) came here.
During WWII and mainly after the war the already nationalized chateau dilapidated for many years as there was a long-term lack of interest from the state, and later it had to be demolished. But thanks to the newly founded Society for preservation of Jezeří it was preserved. Currently it is open to the public and there are many cultural events which are organised there.
