Zbiroh

Zbiroh castle was founded in the 13th century and is one of the oldest Czech castles. Its location on a steep cliff has always attracted people of all classes here. It is often called 'the castle of three kings': Ottokar II, Sigismund of Luxembourg and Rudolf II. Local landscapes inspired world-famous Czech artist Alfons Mucha, who lived in the castle for 16 years and created The Slav Epic here. The castle's impregnability also suited perfectly for SS headquarters, later for Czechoslovakian KGB and even for masons who are said to still have secret meetings here. The castle is now reconstructed in neo-Renaissance style and has a hotel with picturesque view and high-quality services.
