Address:South Bohemia, Czech Republic

Hluboká Castle is said to be the most beautiful castle in the Czech Republic. 

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 there 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. 

About the castle

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. If you are into tapestry, we recommend to check the collection (the biggest in Europe) of the unique Flemish tapestries.
A book lover? The castle´s library contains of over 12 000 books and a spectacular Baroque fire place. If you visit the armory, you will be treated to the collection of weapons from the 13th until the 19th century. 
Before, during or after the tour feel free to take a walk in the beautifully kept English - style park (190 hectares).
