Ruins of Panna Castle

The stronghold built in 1421 by Catholics against Žižkov's Kalich Castle was conquered and thoroughly rebuilt by the Hussites, making it one of their most important fortresses in the country.

That is why it was also demolished in 1437 on the personal order of Emperor Sigismund after the provincial army had unsuccessfully besieged it for a long time and finally - to its good fortune - captured the commander of the castle garrison. One of the largest Czech castles was designed very differently from contemporary castle buildings and fortified with fortifications of a completely new type, making its remains an extremely important monument even in the European context.
