Landstejn Castle A massive fortress from 13th century.

A massive fortress, standing in the heart of the border forests, was built in the early 13th century. The structure was firstly mentioned in 1231. At the time, it was the biggest Romanesque castle in the Czech lands. Its stronghold architecture has survived until.
The two massive towers are connected with a wall defining the upper castle and its courtyard. The six storey southern tower is the main and it is still fully preserved, including a gate in the western wall. Romanesque style used to be quite stern and did not allow many embellishments. They can be found only in the chapel in the northern tower. Afterwards the castle was rebuilt in the late Gothic style and a new Gothic palace was erected. The stronghold character of the castle was strengthened at the turn of the 15th and the 16th centuries when the outer battlements were added. In Renaissance, new living quarters concluded the major reconstructions. After the fire in 1771 the castle became a ruin.
