Notes: Kozel, meaning "goat" in Czech, is the name of a hunting castle in the Classical style close to the city of Plzeň, Czech Republic. The castle was built at the end of 18th century by architect Václav Haberditz for Jan Vojtěch of Czernin. It is a ground-floor building around an inner rectangular court. Around the castle we can find also a chapel, a riding school and a stable. The area is surrounded by a large park that is popular amongst locals. It is whence a very ancient ancestor of Kozels in the United States today originated.
