In 1919, a group of enthusiasts established the Podještědské Museum of Karolína Světlá in Český Dub. In the course of time, the Museum has accumulated large ethnographic and historical collections, including the voluminous literary legacy bequeathed by the writer Karolína Světlá.

The Podještědské Museum has had its seat in Blaschke's Villa since 1945. The renowned North Bohemian entrepreneur in the textile industry, Franz Schmitt, had this Neo-Renaissance building built for his daughter and her husband, Konrad Blaschke, in 1881.
