Ruin of Zbirohy Castle

Zřícenina hradu Zbirohy

Bohemian Paradise

Zbirohy
Koberovy, 468 22

 
Zbirohy Castle used to rise high above the Jizera River near the village of Rakousy, at the point where the river had formed a large turn. Zbirohy is one of the few noble constructions of this type built under the rule of King Wenceslas IV. In his time, the trend in Czech castle architecture was comfort, which is reflected in the look of Zbirohy Castle.

The remnants of the walls and cellars show that the castle was not very large and that it was always dominated by the nearby Hrubý Rohozec. What is still preserved is the relics of the walls (up to 10 m high) and the cellars (in part carved in the rocks). At the entrance you will come across the ruin of a bastion and there is a water reservoir near the former palace.

Locality: 5 km to the northeast from Turnov. The castle is open for free.
