ARCHITECTURE AND HUNTING IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC

Starting from 12th century, a lot of hunting castles and palaces were built in Czech lands.  A hunting castle of great importance was Kralův Dvůr, built by Václav I in 13th century and used by Charles IV and Václav IV as well.  Near Kralův Dvůr the first bohemian pheasantry was constructed. Among famous hunting castles we find Křivoklát, Hlavačov, Jenčov, Jivno, Tyřov, Myšenec, Loket nad Ohří, Nižbor, Žebrák, Točník, Břeclav, Buchlov, Cvilín u Krnova, Roštejn u Telče, Nov& Hrad u Blanska. The golden era of hunting castles ended during the Hussite wars. A great part of medieval hunting castles was  destroyed and today only ruins remain.
