Křivoklát Castle once belonged to major kings and was used as a hunting lodge but its importance sank as it was ravaged by fires twice over the years. It was also briefly used as a prison. Today it features numerous cultural exhibits around its grand interior, but one of the best things about a trip to Křivoklát is the surrounding countryside, with numerous trails perfect for hiking, biking and more.

History

Křivoklát Castle can be found in Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. Křivoklát was founded during 12th century and belonged to Bohemain kings. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.

The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During 19th century family of Fürstenberg became castle owners and reconstructed it after a fire in 1826.

Today the castle serves as museum, tourist destination and place of theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored here. Village Křivoklát slowly grew up under the castle since 14th century.
