Bouzov Castle - Czech Republic Travel Attractions
Take a tour of Bouzov Castle in Czech Republic -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Nestled amid the lovely countryside and gorgeous hills of Moravia, Czech Republic is an idyllic medieval castle.
This 14th century stronghold, the statuesque Bouzov Castle, emerged from an austere sentry castle.
A number of aristocratic families have inhabited this castle throughout its history; as a result its architecture was updated more than once to accommodate their then modern trends.
From its early Gothic beginnings, it was transformed to a Renaissance-style fortress and later into a Neo-Gothic castle.
Adorned with gorgeous oriel windows, elegant bastions, tall towers and Gothic vaulting, this castle is simply exquisite.
Today this rustic beauty is immensely popular as one of the Czech Republic's national monuments.

Czech Republic Travel Attractions - Visit the Karlstejn Castle
Take a tour of Karlstejn Castle in Czech Republic -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Overlooking the Czech village of Karlštejn, mounted on a hilltop is a grand castle.
Karlstejn Castle is one of the grand features and jewels of Czech Republic, immensely popular worldwide.
An exquisite Gothic marvel, it was the vision of the King of Bohemia, Charles IV.
Founded in 1348, it took around 18 years to be constructed and finished only after the consecration of Chapel of the Holy Cross took place.
This illustrious castle played an imperative role in securing the Bohemian coronation jewels and Imperial Regalia among other important items.
Erected on a promontory, the current appearance of the castle in neo- Gothic style can be attributed to Josef Mocker.

Bouzov Castle, Czech Republic
The Bouzov Castle is one of the most visited castles in the Czech Republic and a magnificent fortress that has never gone to ruin in all of its history. It was built on a hill in Moravia, Czech Republic, as a Gothic stronghold in the early 14th century. This fairy tale castle is a great tourist attraction in the Czech Republic, offering various tours and even an exhibition of Dragons and Dragonslayers, devoted to life-sized fairytale dragons and the knights who fought them!
Cochem Castle, Germany
It is generally assumed that Cochem Castle was built around the year 1000 by the palatinate count Ezzo, son and successor to palatinate count Hermann Pusilius. The castle had a long and colorful history until French King Louis XIV had his troops obliterate it in 1689. The castle remained a colorful stone ruin for 180 years until wealthy Berlin businessman Louis Ravené decided to buy the ruins and rebuild the castle in 1868.!
Corvin Castle, Romania

This beautiful fairy tale castle features a sumptuous Knights' Hall, an impressive drawbridge, high buttresses and inner courtyards, all resplendent with medieval art.
Glücksburg Castle, Germany
Glücksburg Castle is the ancestral home of the Dukes of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, and has been used occasionally by the Danish Kings. Nicknamed the Wasserschloss ('water castle') owing to its position in the middle of a lake, it is one of the most important Renaissance castles in northern Europe. The castle was built from 1582 to 1587 by Nikolaus Karie for John II, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg, at the site of a former monastery.
Hohenzollern Castle, Germany
Hohenzollern Castle is situated at the summit of a Swabian hill overlooking the small town of Hechingen in Germany. While its foundations are a millennium old, the castle has been assaulted, torn down, built, and rebuilt, falling twice in furious bombardments from catapults, archers, and swordsmen. This idyllic castle looks like it was taken straight out of a fairy tale, with its tall towers and seven successive gates!
Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany

Today Neuschwanstein, the castle of the fairy-tale king, is one of the most popular of all the palaces and castles in Europe, visited every year by 1.4 million people!
Ooidonk Castle, Belgium
Located on the Lys River in Belgium, Ooidonk is a remarkable example of Flemish Renaissance castle built in the 13-14th century by the Lords of Nevele. The castle was completely destroyed by the troops of Maximillian of Austria in 1491, but it was reconstructed in 1501. The castle was burnt again in 1579 during the religious wars and was rebuilt in the Flemish-Spanish style you see today.
Wernigerode Castle, Germany
Wernigerode Castle (Schloss Wernigerode) is a stunning sight built during the 12th century that may make some feel as if they have been transported into a fairy tale world. The castle was rebuilt into a Renaissance fortress, in the 16th century and then rebuilt in the baroque style as a romantic castle residence during the 17th century.
