   Large ruins of a castle established in the first half of the 14th century. The castle was twice besieged and conquered by the Hussites, during the second siege in 1421 the commander Jan Žižka was badly injured in his only sound eye. By the end of the 15th century the castle was enlarged and newly fortified by a row of inward open gun bastions. Since the 17th century the ruler Ferdinand II prohibited to repair the castle which consequently dilapidated. The builders however did a very good work and the fortress survived long periods of time in such good condition that at present it is a brilliant example of castle architecture and one of the biggest castles in the Czech Republic.
