Křivoklát Castle

Křivoklát is one of the oldest and most important castles of Bohemian kings and princes. It used to be a popular hunting lodge and many famous rulers walked through its chambers – such as Charles IV, Wenceslas IV, or Vladislaus II. There are rich art collections there, thanks to which the tours are like a journey through time from the Middle Ages to the 20th century.

Křivoklát was built in the 12th century under the reign of Ottokar II of Bohemia. It experienced its golden era, for example, under the rule of Vladislaus II who had it rebuilt in the flamboyant Jagiellonian Gothic style and turned it into one of the most ostentatious royal residences in Central Europe. It even guarded the crown jewels during the Hussite Wars. The most precious part of the Křivoklát Castle is the tower with the hunting collections, halls with the exposition of Gothic art and sculptures, the library with 52 thousand rare volumes, as well as the prison and the torture chamber. In the past, Křivoklát was the home to kings, while at present, it is a popular location for filmmakers. Many films of Czech fairy tales have been shot there, as well as some Hollywood blockbusters, such as Wanted and the Brothers Grimm.
