CASTLE BLATNA, BLATNA

Categories , ,

The castle and grounds at Blatna are without doubt one of the most important monuments of their type in this country today from an architectural and historical standpoint. The castle’s long history, which starts in the late 12th century, its distinct architectural style in a rare surviving environment of parks and water, and current condition all make it a jewel among castle complexes.
Along with Švihov and Červena Lhota, Blatna is one of the best preserved water castles in the Czech Republic. Its architectural and historical development made this chateau a striking example of the changing artistic styles over the centuries, and since it was mostly held by members of the high nobility over the years, Blatna was one of the places where Central Europe’s history was made and shaped.
