Karlstejn Castle

Karlstejn was founded by Charles IV in 1348 as his countryside residence, lying on the way from Prague to Nuremberg. After Charles IV became a holy roman emperor, the castle changed its role from a mere residence to a fortress protecting the crown jewells of both Holy Roman Empire and the Czech kingdom. The castle was built in 17 years which was fast for the 14th century. In 1419 when the Hussite wars broke out, the crown jewells were moved to Germany for safety. After the Hussite wars (1419-1436) the Roman crown jewells stayed abroad whereas the Czech crown jewells were put back inside Karlstejn castle. They remained there until 1618 when it was decided that the jewells will be better protected at the Prague castle. The castle was badly damaged by the Swedes in 1648 and afterwards became a ruin. In the late 19th century the castle was rebuilt into its current form and today it is one of the most visited castles in the Czech Republic.
