Konopiste Castle is no less beautiful and grandiose than the previously mentioned two. The castle is located near the rivers Elbe and Vltava. As the castle had a strategically beneficial location, many mansions and palaces were built near it. During several centuries Konopiste Castle remained the residence of Czech princes and kings. Prague suburbs are the location of one more landmark – Terezin Fortress. The fortress got its name after the great empress Maria Theresa. Terezin Fortress was built in the 18th century; this is a large garrison city that was initially founded to protect the land against Prussian army.
