Welcome to Prague Environs
Cities :   Kutna Hora    Dobris

This Gothic castle dating from the first half of the 14th century was modified in the late Gothic style. The Kokorinsko protected landscape area includes the sandstone area of the Czech Chalk Table. The natural reserve, known as "Kokorinsky dul", is located in a deep valley of the Psovka River, which is cut into sandstone rocks from the chalk age. However the most famous of all are the "ragstone" formations known as "skalni poklicky" ("rock lids"). This castle was abandoned in the 17th century. The ruin was restored in the romantic style for J. Spacek at the beginning of the 20th century under a skilled supervision of Z. Winter and A. Sedlacek. Romantic interiors of an old palace include historic equipment and period collections. The Big Tower was modified as a lookout.
