The Castle in the Middle of the Woods – Gothic Castle Krivoklat was originally built as an important point of defence on the way from the state border to Prague. Later, Czech monarchs mainly used it for hunts in the neighbouring deep forests. Even later, it was used as a royal prison for particularly troublesome prisoners. The castle’s dungeon and torture chamber, with a range of medieval torture instruments, are included in the tour. Those more interested in cultural history will find a unique exhibition of Gothic paintings and sculpture at Krivoklat.
The Krivoklat Castle is a great target for a Tailor-made Tour.
