It is just a little chateau ? but the history of this place is really nicely documented and how life was in the old days. A lot of films and animations are shown. Some of the rooms are dedicated to exhibitions and on our visit they showed old world maps ?. Children 7-17 1€, 17-25 4€, Adults 8€ - worth every cent :-)

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.
