Bouzov Castle (Czech: Hrad Bouzov) built on a hill is an early 14th-century fortress first mentioned in 1317. In 1558 the castle burned down. In 1696 the barony was bought by the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order. The Grand Master from 1799 to 1839, Archduke Eugen Habsburg, decided to rebuild it in a Romantic, Neo-Gothic style.

 

Today an eight-storey watchtower dominates the complex. The buildings are grouped around it in the form of a horseshoe. Two bridges, ending with a short drawbridge, span the deep dry moat around the castle. Since 1999 the castle has been a national monument.

Cervená Lhota is a water castle. It stands in the middle of a lake on a rocky island. The four-winged two-storey château, with a small coutyard in the center, occupies the whole rock and juts into the lake. A stone bridge, built in 1622, links the castle with the banks of the pond, replacing the original drawbridge.

Pernštejn (Czech: hrad Pernštejn) came to be known as the marble castle because of the marble-like stone used to frame the doors and windows.

 

The castle was founded by the Lords of Medlov probably between 1270–1285. Its history is closely connected to the Lords of Pernštejn (Pernštejnové) and their descendants. It has kept its intact appearance in the Gothic and Renaissance form as it was finished in the first half of the 16th century by the Pernštejns, then the richest and most powerful lordly family of the Czech kingdom.

 

It has the most extraordinary entrance tower.

 

Pernštejn is one of the best preserved castles in Czech Republic.
