Hrad Trosky, Czech Republic

From series “The Most Inaccessible Buildings in the World”
Year: 14th century.

In the surroundings of Prague lies the mysterious and beautiful castle Trosky, which was considered one of the most impregnable defense facilities in the Czech Republic. The castle was built in the rock between two craters of the ancient extinct volcano. The construction workers built the castle towers in the craters. Together with the dark inaccessible rocks, the castle looks just unique. The forest surrounding the rocks forms an impressive contrast with the dark shades.

Hrad Trosky, Czech Republic Although the first official references to the castle date from the end of the 14th century, some historians say that it was built much earlier. For centuries, the castle had repulsed the sieges of the Swedish conquerors. Later the castle stood empty for several centuries. The most romantic epoch for the castle began in the 19th century when its owner was Alois. During this period painters and poets from around the world have visited the castle in search of inspiration. From the Frauenturm of the castle opened the magnificent panorama to the surroundings.

It must be mentioned that this tower is the oldest element of the building. After the strong fire in 1428 he was the only surviving building. Despite its uniqueness and charm, Trosky is one of the most mysterious and unexplored castles in the world. All the documents that could lighten their history were burned in the numerous fires. Currently, the historical site is protected by the Institute of Heritage. Despite its impressive age, the castle has been well preserved and is open to visitors. Next - Pitigliano
