The castle of Kokorin ranks among the places most favoured by visitors. Its romantic appearance, accentuated by its position on a sandstone rock, won its fame during the 19th century, when it was associated with the names of romantic writers and painters.
Hynek Berka from Duba built the castle in the second quarter of the 14th century, probably. Because of its difficult accessibility and uncomfortability, the castle was left uninhabited and slowly decayed. The written records from the 16th century described the castle as an empty and desolated one.
The castle has preserved its romantic appearance mainly due to the edict of Ferdinand III. (made out after the Thirty Years War), according to which the castle was not allowed to be rebuilt.
The decaying of the castle was stopped at the times of its last owners, members of the Spacek Family, who had the castle midified before the World War II. in the spirit of Romanticism. Jan Spacek had the new Palace built on the place of the former wooden building and also a family tomb came into being due to him.
The interiors present a romanticized example of period living, period furnishings and period collections. Visitors can go upstairs to reach the upper floors of the castle tower and go around the whole castle along the gallery provided with battlement.
