Kost Castle was built in the 14th century and remains one of the most well-preserved castles in the Czech Republic.

Visitors can explore the interiors rich with period furniture, armory, and even a torture chamber that gives a glimpse into medieval justice.
Another intriguing feature is its "White Tower," named for its light-colored sandstone, which serves as a stunning vantage point for panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Moreover, the castle hosts various seasonal events, including historical reenactments and medieval markets. It's an ideal location for history buffs, photographers, and anyone seeking a magical, old-world atmosphere.
