Visit Hluboka Castle in 2024

Hluboká Castle is often considered one of the most beautiful castles in the Czech Republic, and for good reason. Originally built in the 13th century, the castle has undergone various transformations, each adding a layer of architectural and aesthetic richness. Its most notable renovation in the 19th century gave it its current Romantic appearance, modeled after England's Windsor Castle.
The interior is a cornucopia of lavishness—rich tapestries, exquisite woodwork, and a library boasting over 12,000 volumes. Each room offers a different slice of history and opulence, from the arms room displaying an extensive collection of European weaponry to the sumptuous bedrooms adorned with silk wall coverings.
Outside, the meticulously landscaped gardens are an attraction unto themselves, offering an idyllic setting for a leisurely stroll. The castle's position above the Vltava River also offers spectacular views, making it a must-see landmark for both history buffs and casual visitors alike.
