Czech Republic

Kokorin Castle

Fancy a trip to a historic castle nestled in the rolling hills of the Czech Republic and surrounded by nature? Kokořín Castle may be the ideal place for you to spend some time in.

Kokořín Castle is a castle located approximately 10 km northeast of Mělník. It was built in the first half of the 14th century by order of Hynek Berka of Dubé. It was heavily damaged during the Hussite Wars and stood in ruins until the reconstruction campaign of 1911–1918. Yet, today it is one of the most famous and beautiful castles standing in Europe.

The first recorded mention of Kokořín dates from 1320. In the same year Sir Jindřich of Osměchov received Kokořín manor from the nobleman Hynek Berka of Dubá.

The castle over time had many heirs and patrons, including writers and painters who flocked to the castle while it was still in ruins. Only recently in 2006 was the castle returned to the hands of the Špačk family, who intend to continue the family tradition and continue to preserve this popular monument for the public.

Among the stunning nature and architecture, many visitors find the spot ideal for picnics.
