Křivoklát Castle can be found in Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. Křivoklát was founded during 12th century and belonged to Bohemain kings. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.
The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During 19th century family of Fürstenberg became castle owners and reconstructed it after a fire in 1826.
Today the castle serves as museum, tourist destination and place of theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored here.
