Lobkowicz Chateau and Romanesque Castle
At the end of the 12th century, the Bishop of Prague had a Romanesque castle built on a rocky ridge above the river Elbe. It was enlarged during the Gothic period. In the 16th century, a Renaissance wing was added and later was the entire complex expanded even further.
The dominant silhouette rises on a rocky promontory above the confluence of the rivers Elbe and Ploučnice. Its current form is the work of the leading aristocratic family of the Habsburg monarchy. During the 20th century, the Děčín chateau was the seat of several armies. The complex includes an extensive castle park and a baroque rose garden.
Doksany Monastery and Chateau
The monastery in Doksany enjoyed its greatest expansion in the 13th and 14th centuries. During the Hussites and during the Thirty Years' War, it was looted. In the second half of the 17th century, it was generously rebuilt in the Baroque style.
Libochovice Chateau is a popular tourist destination for its romantic location on the banks of the river Ohře with the ruins of Házmburk Castle in the background and the volcanic hills of the Central Bohemian Uplands.
