Interesting Places in the Czech Republic

Hluboka Castle

Hluboka is a dazzling white fairy-tale landmark, nestled in the woods at the edge of Ceské Budejovice. Originally built as a gothic castle around 1250, it underwent significant reconstruction in the 1860s in the neo-gothic Windsor Castle style.

Krivoklat Castle

Krivoklát Castle is one of the oldest and most important castles built by the Czech princes and kings, its roots tracing to the 12th century. During the reign of Premysl Otakar II and his son, Wenceslas II, it was built as a magnificent royal castle. In the middle of 19th century, the Fursternbergs had the castle rebuilt in the romantic style. This one-time hunting-lodge of several rulers has remarkable castle interiors with many well-preserved elements of medieval decoration. The Monumental Big Tower houses hunting weapons and other exhibits connected with hunting history. Also noteworthy is the castle chapel and a large late-gothic hall, with an exhibition of panel paintings and sculptures. Situated about 30 miles SW of Prague. Duration of the tour is 4 hours.

Nelahozeves

The village of Nelahozeves is mentioned as early as the middle of the 14th century. After 1544 Florián Gryspek from Gryspach, who held an important office in the court of Emperor Ferdinand I, became owner of the manor and had the castle built there. In 1623, the castle passed into the hands of its present owners, the Lobkowicz family. Even today it preserves its original renaissance appearance. The castle collection has an extraordinarily rich picture gallery of outstanding European masters, with one of the largest collections of Spanish portraits of 16th and 17th century. During the tour it is possible to visit the birthplace of Antonin Dvorák, which is situated just below the castle. Duration of the tour is 4 hours.

Cervena Lhota

The South Bohemian château Cervená Lhota is one of the most romantic monuments in Bohemia. It rises up on a rock surrounded by the lake. Visitors have access to sixteen rooms, with a very cozy chamber atmosphere, recalling life from the renaissance period up until the 19th century. Extraordinarily impressive views can be seen from the windows across the surface of the lake and into the Castle Park. The duration of the tour is 6 hours.

Cesky Sternberk

This Early Gothic Castle, founded around 1240, ranks among the few historic monuments whose owners have remained the same from the very beginning until nowadays and after whom the castle has got its name. In the 15th century, the Castle was partly damaged and the last definitive architectural changes were carried out in the 17th century, when its medieval appearance nearly disappeared. Visitors are taken through baroque interiors, with contemporary furniture of appreciable value and stuccoed ceilings. The collection has an excellent and wide-ranging collection of graphic lists of the 17th century, historical weapons and hunting trophies. Duration of the tour is 4 hours

Zleby

Chateau Zleby, originally a gothic castle of the Lords of Lichtenburg, was built at the end of the 13th century and rebuilt after the Hussite wars during the middle of the 15th century. The castle underwent both renaissance and Baroque renovations and was rebuilt into its current appearance upon the suggestion of one of the later owners of the manor, Karel Vincent Ausperg. Since 1945, the castle has been owned by State. Duration of the tour is 6 hours.
