In the vicinity of the city, you can find the ancient Bezděz Castle, which is a vivid example of Gothic architecture. The castle's construction was carried out in the second half of the 13th century. It became one of the most important defensive centers for the region. By the 17th century, it has survived many battles but remained intact. The building suffered the most during the Thirty Years War when the Swedish troops have managed to capture the castle for the first time in its history.
In the 17th century, a monastery was founded in the castle and some important relics were brought here. Bezděz became a pilgrimage center, every year it was visited by over 40,000 people. In 1932, the castle became a property of Karl Wallenstein, a descendant of one of the fortress' last owners. A large-scale reconstruction that has begun under his guidance is still ongoing. The fortress stands on a hilltop so during the tour travelers will have the opportunity to check some excellent viewpoints. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

Sonderzug von Dresden nach Liberec The castle was built to protect the town in the 16th century. Over time, the territory of Liberec expanded rapidly, so the castle turned out to be surrounded by new streets on all sides. The building's main characteristic is that it was built of brick, which was completely untypical of local architecture of the 16th century.
