Castles, Castles, and Castes, Oh My!
By templedf on Jul 11, 2004
My wife and I just came back from a three-day castle hunting trip into the Czech Republic. Wow. We had previously never been farther into Czech than Prague. This time we covered pretty much the entire southern half of the country. In case anyone is looking for an opinion on which Czech castles are most worth seeing, here's my list:
|Tocnick||\*\*||Cool ruins near Prague|
|Pernstejn||\*\*\*\*||A classic example of a late Gothic castle|
|Vranov nad Dyji||\*\*\*\*||Gorgeous Windsor-style chateau overlooking the river|
|Hluboka nad Vltavou||\*\*\*\*\*||Unbelievable! Puts Neuschwanstein to shame!|
|Cesky Krumlov\*||\*\*\*||Very large UNESCO World Heritage castle|
\* - The C in Cesky should have a '\^' over it. It's pronounced 'chesky'
And now you know.
