Moravský Krumlov Castle garden and trees

Moravský Krumlov is a town in the Znojmo District in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic. To be honest I knew about it due to famous Alfons Mucha and the Slavonic Epic - Boundless Humanity masterpiece, before it was moved to Prague. One day, it was hot summer, I think I visited Moravský Krumlov for the first time. Unfortunately, that day all was closed I could have visited only limited parts of premises.

Pernstejn Castle

Pernstejn Castle is a castle on a rock above the village of Nedvědice and the rivers Svratka and Nedvědička, some 40 kilometres northwest of Brno, in the South Moravian Region, Czech Republic. Pernstejn came to be known as the marble castle because of the marble-like stone used to frame the doors and windows.

Veveri Castle

Is an originally ducal and royal castle some 12 kilometres northwest of Brno city centre. To be honest this is one of the nearest castles to visit from Brno as also public transport passes by.  I do not want to write about the history but it is necessary to point out that the castle is or was rebuilt, I mean reconstructed after it was destructively used by the socialistic - communist regime.

Castle - Velhartice

Is the stone castle in the surroundings of Klatovy or in a broader sense of Zelezna Ruda. The castle was built at the beginning of 14th century and is situated over the village of Velhartice. If anyone comes to see it there are several interesting dominants belonging to the castle. Also, the journey is interesting as well as the valley where the same-named village is situated.

Water Castle Svihov

Is a famous ‘floating’ stone castle situated in the town of the same name near Klatovy. The castle is surrounded by water and look like floating on it. The castle consists of two residential palaces, five-level entrance tower and a chapel built on top of the bastion. There were two water moats around the castle.

Austerlitz Chateau, Slavkov u Brna

Is a Baroque palace in Slavkov u Brna, in the Czech Republic. The small town and the castle are chiefly known for the Battle of Austerlitz. It is nice to place pictures as there are huge gardens all around. Photographers and also models are looking for this place to take pictures.

Klenova Castle and Manor house

Klenová Castle and Chateau are located on a hill of the same name west of the town of Klatovy, in the Pilsen Region.  The first mention of the castle dates from 1287; at that time the castle guarded the trade route facing Železná Ruda to Bavaria. The Lords of Klenová come from the castle. The palace was built in the 14th and 15th centuries, however, since 17th century it is dilapidated.

Jaromerice nad Rokytnou – castle

I like travelling around the country visiting and watching sigh seen. This Summer I also visited chateau or castle Jaromerice in the same-named village Jaromerice nad Rokytnou. To be honest I do not know too much about castles but in this case, I have learnt it ranks among the most popular historical landmarks in the region.
