Archaeological park of immense value, subject to systematic excavation since 2003. The late ancient Villa of Faragola, consisting of a dining room (cenatio) with a rare stibadium and a spa complex with mosaic flooring, testifies to the most illustrious period of the site, with remains ranging from the Daunian to the Middle Ages. Unfortunately, an arson attack in 2017 destroyed the roof and damaged part of the archaeological remains. Now we must raise it from the ashes.

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.
