The place is very beautiful but outdoors. The reception room (in an old chapel) is quite gloomy, the furniture is ugly, especially the very cheap Bordeaux plastic chairs. Small kitchen.

Magnificent place of reception. Some odors due to humidity but the site is superb and the room in old stones and exposed beams is authentic.

Krivoklát Castle

Křivoklát Castle was founded in the 12th century, belonging to the kings of Bohemia. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.

The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into a harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During the 19th century, the family of Fürstenberg became the owners of the castle and had it reconstructed after a fire in 1826.

Today the castle serves as a museum, tourist destination and place for theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
