Kyjov Castle

The remains of a very large fortified complex above the Křinice River near the village of Kyjov. Its name, Horní Karlštejn or Pustý zámek (Abandoned Chateau) and the legend about the castle’s origins date back to the era of romanticism. The fortifications were built during the 14th century and were most likely to safeguard a small prospectors’ settlement.
