Cesky Sternberk Castle is located approximately 45 km south-east of Prague and is one of the few castles still owned by the descendants of its original occupants. It is a magnificent castle not just for its gothic architecture and medieval presence, but also because of its stunning location. It was constructed in 1241 on top of a nearly vertical cliff, below which flows the Sazava River and the village of Sternberk.

Its position gives you panoramic views of the undulating countryside surrounding the castle. It has undergone several restorations and remodeling work since its inception and the interior and exterior designs now include several Baroque and Rococo features. The interior is also ornately decorated with stucco works and the parquet floors are particularly impressive.

The castle, which is the second largest in Prague, houses a collection of valuable art works, period furniture, wall hangings including unique tapestries and collections of weapons, glass and porcelain. Most of the rooms are light and airy with grand dimensions.

The castle and its medieval surroundings are well worth the 45km journey from Prague.
