Bardzo ładny zamek

Zamek warty odwiedzenia. Położony nieco z boku, poza głównymi szlakami. Niestety niewiele się tam dzieje. Od lat trwa remont, którego nie widać. Zamek można zwiedzić tylko od zewnątrz.

Z zewnątrz zamek robi wrażenie, ale nie da się wejść do środka i sporo syfu dokoła. Chyba trwa tam remont, ale ogólnie całość zaniedbana.

Wspaniały obiekt, ze wspaniałą architekturą, niestety strasznie zaniedbany, z okolicznych opowieści wiadomo że posiada prywatnego właściciela, i coś tam robi od kilku lat. Szkoda że tak monumentalny budynek podupada nie dając świadectwa swojej historii odwiedzającym.... Na teren obiektu nie można wejść, tylko można obejść...

Daję 5 bo zamek jest w swietnym stanie jak na obiekt tego typu. Czyli nie jest ani zniszczony przez wandali ani nie naruszony przez nieumiejętne remonty. Stan bardzo oryginalny. A do srodka da się wejsc tylko trzeba poszukać. W piwnicach nawet mozna znaleźć fragmenty średniowiecznej drewnianej kanalizacji. A krużganki pod dachem to cudo.

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.
