Order Tour Code: C SWW3
Tour availability: Tour available in summer season

The late Gothic castle at Svihov deserves an extraordinary position among fortification complexes. Erected under the participation of architect Benedict Rejt in the place of a former stronghold at the turn of the 16th century, the core of this castle consists of two residential wings closing the inner courtyard.
The surrounding castle area had been fortified with bastions and hemmed round with another moat, forming together with several adjacent ponds an artificial island.
