This fortress can only be visited via a guidetour, which is more than worthwhile. The Principal is unknown but probably the earls of Bogen, of who Rabi and surrounding areas between 1124-1273 belonged to. After the land and estates went to Bohemia again end of the13th century, Rabi was probably inhabited by the Velhartices (Sušice). Already mentioned in 1380 as the property of Půta I Švihovský (House Riesenberger), later owned by Půta II Švihovský, his heirs owned the castle until 1504 but were increasingly in need of money, 1548 they discharged the castle, multiple ownership changes followed, including: Heinrich Kurzbach von Trachenberg, Diviš Malovec z Libějovice and Vilém z Rožmberk. 1570 It was property of Dlouhé Vsi untill the first decade of the 18th century. Despite the edicts of Emperor Ferdinand III and Leopold I fort Rabi remained intact but unmaintained and eventually became badly destroyed during the 30-year war and later the castle walls were dismantled by people who intended to use the stones as building material, to make matters worse a fire did occur in 1720.
