Krivoklat Castle

this Resource was last updated on 20 Oct 04

Like Karlstejn, this castle underwent a reconstruction overseen by Joseph Mocker. It started out as a hunting lodge, a weekend getaway for the Premyslid Princes and the seat of the royal master of hounds. Later, Wenceslas I built a stone castle on the spot and Charles IV used it in the 14th century.
The castle is over 900 years old.
Surrounding the castle are some hiking trails and a few shops and restaurants are located in the courtyard. You must take a tour to see the interior of the castle. Be wary of the midday break in the castle's opening times.
