The Hluboká Castle is located in the South part of Bohemia. Originally a Gothic style castle was founded in the 13th century by Bohemian kings as a military fortification. Over the centuries it has been restored several times. In the 19th century, the castle was completely rebuilt in the Neo-Gothic architecure style inspired by the Winsdor Castle in England.

The Schwanzerbergs (aristocratic family tracing their roots to the Middle Ages) lived at the castle until 1939, then the last owner fled the country to escape from the Nazis. The castle is now a National Cultural Monument of the Czech Republic.

The castle has 140 rooms and 11 towers. You might have a peak inside the private rooms as well as grand ceremonial halls or you might want to visit the castle kitchen with lots of kitchen equipment preserved from the late 18th till the beginning of the 20th century.
