The author of this text recently took advantage of a few days off from work to visit a new place they had never been to before – the Cesky Sternberk castle. While they don't go into detail about the photos they took during their visit, they do mention that the weather was dull and chilly, which may have affected their mood and experience.
Mikulov is a town on the way to Austria. And anybody travelling from Brno to Vienna have to pass it. City is not very big, but it is famous for its wine, brothels and a castle. The Mikulov castle cannot be overlooked and many people passing through this town come and visit it.
One day I did the same, parked the car in the centre and went up a small hill to visit the castle. As a building it is nothing exceptional, however garden is beautiful similarly as views from around the castle.
Ruined Castle Rabí is a stunning historical site located in the village of Rabí, close to the city of Klatovy. The castle has been standing there since the 14th century and it played an important role in the history of the region. However, after centuries of wars and neglect, the castle has been abandoned and left to decay.
Ruined castle are somehow interesting. The feeling when you pass by damaged, ruined walls, feeling of the history. One of the ruined castles visited is Cimburk. It is situated in the forest. Walk to its premises takes some time and effort. As soon as you enter the gate there are displayed ruins. At the moment being rebuilt.
From time to time I go for a shorter or longer trip. In this case I decided to travel bit further to explore Bitov Castle. Unfortunately, after two hour journey and walking through the forest I took some pictures of Bitov castle. To be hones the most beautiful on this trip was the nature surrounding it. Just a few pictures can prove my option.
Boskovice castle in winter, it is called castle but in reality is almost a ruin. Better say it is a ruin of old Castle. Next to this ruin is also a Chateau, however at the time of my visit it was closed so I took steep journey up to the castle and enjoyed beautiful view into the valley and forest. As the Boskovice castle was closed as well I just took few pictures of the walls, towers and near surrounding.
Svojanov Castle, I have heard too much about this castle, only superlatives. The journey to get to it was beautiful, however, the castle itself was a small disappointment to me. I cannot say I did not like it, but I felt as I have seen it somewhere else and now something, some parts were missing. So the photos presented are aimed more at the journey approaching the castle than itself.
