It is a private castle, open to the public for the FAI spring days. It will be available for private events with a reduced number of people, I think, also having a small consecrated church.

Small private castle from the Middle Ages, dating back to the 12th century. Currently inhabited, it is available for parties, events or meetings. Partly renovated, it certainly needs other works to be further enhanced. It has a large well-kept garden that surrounds it. Recommended!

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.
