A beautiful ecopark around this castle. Very nice hiking routes in this area. Good for a dog walk and a hike with the whole family. Even small kids can walk routes. A large parking right in front of the castle. Easy to find. The last few meters are gravel.

I stopped by here for a quick walk in a nature reserve, and found the art pillars a fun surprise. The mansion is beautiful, but it was closed when I was there (on a holiday). There were some incredible structures built from tree branches. One was a gazebo thingy, and the other was a tree house look-out bridge thingy, which was closed from entering. Saw lots of lovely birdies. Four pokestops, one of which is a gym. Sadly my blissey has been sitting in it for over a week now. Not the easy 50 coins I thought it would be. Thought I saw a trilobite in a driveway stone. Posted a pic of it

Hluboká Castle

Hluboká Castle (Schloss Frauenberg) is considered one of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic. In the second half of the 13th century, a Gothic castle was built at the site. During its history, the castle was rebuilt several times. It was first expanded during the Renaissance period, then rebuilt into a Baroque castle at the order of Adam Franz von Schwarzenberg in the beginning of the 18th century. It reached its current appearance during the 19th century, when Johann Adolf II von Schwarzenberg ordered the reconstruction of the castle in the romantic style of England's Windsor Castle.

The Schwarzenbergs lived in Hluboká until the end of 1939, when the last owner (Adolph Schwarzenberg) emigrated overseas to escape from the Nazis. The Schwarzenbergs lost all of their Czech property through a special legislative Act, the Lex Schwarzenberg, in 1947.

The original royal castle of Přemysl Otakar II from the second half of the 13th century was rebuilt at the end of the 16th century by the Lords of Hradec. It received its present appearance under Count Jan Adam of Schwarzenberg. According to the English Windsor example, architects Franz Beer and F. Deworetzky built a Romantic Neo-Gothic chateau, surrounded by a 1.9 square kilometres English park here in the years 1841 to 1871. In 1940, the castle was seized from the last owner, Adolph Schwarzenberg by the Gestapo and confiscated by the government of Czechoslovakia after the end of World War II. The castle is open to public. There is a winter garden and riding-hall where the Southern Bohemian gallery exhibitions have been housed since 1956.
