Křivoklát Castle is located in Central Bohemia, Czech Republic.
Křivoklát was founded in the 12th century, belonging to the kings of Bohemia. 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 for theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
The village of Křivoklát, founded in the 14th century, grew slowly below the castle.

  • As a foreigner in this country, I'm amazed by the sights and history sometimes. It was very special to see one of the castles that belonged to King Charles the 4th, and was actually his summer place.....  more

  • Outside the season there is unfortunately nothing to do. The tours are rare separated in two hour time slots and if you're not doing the tour, there is very little to see. The castle itself is impressive from the outside, very nicely situated and well kept. The surrounding area is mostly forest without interesting trails so really not much to do outside season. We'll try to come back in summer.
  • We went for a nice family trip and we enjoyed very much the walk to this castle. Really beautiful! A must see!!!
