Trip Křivoklát

It was built as a hunting castle in the 13th century under the rule of the Přemysls dynasty. Křivoklát was very popular place to rest among the monarchs. At the end of the 15th century it was rebuilt in the  Gothic  style. Its fame had ended with the Habsburg dynasty accession on Czech throne. At that time Křivoklát was used as a prison. After a fire in 1643 Křivoklát was falling into disrepair. Fortunately, it was reconstructed at the end of the 19th century. When joining the guided tour, you can take a view of the royal hall, chapel or prison with torture equipment. Very famous is the library with about 52000 volumes. After the tour you can climb the Huderka tower and relish the wonderful view over the countryside from the roofed parapet walk.
