Hrad Křivoklát / Castle

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Křivoklát Castle can be found in Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic.
Křivoklát was founded during the 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 a harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During the 19th century, the family of Fürstenberg became the owners of the castle and had it reconstructed after a fire in 1826.
Today the castle serves as a museum, tourist destination and place of theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
the Village Křivoklát slowly grew up under the castle since 14th century.
