The castle is still in a terrible condition. At least it's under the roof and it's slowly getting at least the facade. Otherwise nothing to see.

The castle is in poor condition, but it is worth visiting. The parking lot is at the castle.

Pokud je co jíst a co pít, je hezky.

All honor to the enthusiasts of the association, who are trying to at least stop the decay. Good luck. And the tour is very interesting, because it shows the castle (and the castle) differently than what Hluboká looks like.

Odeon of Herodes Atticus

The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theatre structure located on the southwest slope of the Acropolis of Athens. It was built in 161 AD by the Athenian magnate Herodes Atticus in memory of his wife, Aspasia Annia Regilla. It was originally a steep-sloped theater with a three-story stone front wall and a wooden roof made of expensive cedar of Lebanon timber. It was used as a venue for music concerts with a capacity of 5,000. It lasted intact until it was destroyed and left in ruins by the Heruli in 267 AD.

The audience stands and the orchestra (stage) were restored using Pentelic marble in the 1950s. Since then it has been the main venue of the Athens Festival, which runs from May through October each year, featuring a variety of acclaimed Greek as well as International performances.
