There is not much left of it. Still it is worth to visit and the nature around is breathtaking. Also visit the rock formations and "zámek Hrubá skála"

It is not very easy to find the way to the spot since it is poorly marked if you arrive from Turnov. You should take the Soboticka st. and carefully watch out once you've passed the train rails. At some (alomst invisibly marked) point, you...More

Not realy a castle. Some costumes presented. The guided tour is not in english. The view from there is not better than a view from a near by road.

Definitely worth visiting - choose the time when some festivities are taking place, it is usually plenty of fun! Castle itself is very picturesque, not even mentioning the stunning views!!!

This Hrad claims to be the most romantic in Cesky Raj. But honestly I was extremely underwhelmed. Not much to admire and learn about on the interior. And the exterior views were poor compared to other sights in the area. I don't mind a hike,...More
