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. The inner moat was placed where today's inner courtyard is and the outer moat was between the inner and outer rampart (of which a part is still standing).

In the medieval times it functioned as a protection against the enemies. Now it seems to be more or less attraction for tourists... Anyway the nature around the city itself is beautiful and those who admire old castles and history would find this place interesting.
