A very nice old church. There is a lot of information inside the church about the history. There are beautiful frescoes in the ceiling. The church is open every day from 9-17. It's a great way to get a better idea of ​​Stege's history by looking into the church. Definitely worth a visit !!!!

Beautiful old church. Miserable acoustics, but a visitor may not care. Very harsh restoration of lime decorations.

A beautiful red stone church, built in the first half of the 13th century in Romanesque style. The original parts consisted of ship, drive and apse. The tower was added later. In 1460-1525 the church was expanded to the size it has today. On the north side of the choir, a sacristy was erected 1907-1909 with a main restoration

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.
