In the territory of today’s Czech Republic, there are almost 1 200 chateaux, castles, and fortresses that were established during the time of monarchy called the Lands of the Bohemian Crown. Some of these objects are notorious – Český Krumlov, Hluboká, Karlštejn, Lednice or Křivoklát. These are castles and chateaux that are visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year. Some are so charming that they look like they came from a fairy tale – and therefore they regularly become the backdrop during shoots for fairy tale movies. (Beautiful chateaux Červená Lhota in South Bohemia is the record holder at this point.) Whether they are generally known or forgotten, all chateaux, castles, and fortresses have their own history. And they also have their stories. And we want to tell you some of them.
