Hrad Karlštejn (Czech Republic) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Hrad Karlstejn in the Czech Republic.
Thirty kilometres southwest of Prague and surrounded by a dense forest landscape, is the monumental Gothic Karlštejn Fortress. It is the most famous castle in the Czech Republic and was built by Emperor Karl The Fourth for a single purpose: a secure place in which to store the crown jewels! The palace’s most important reception room is the Hall Of Ancestors next door to which there are paintings of both fictional and authentic ancestors of the Emperor. The higher-located St Mary's Tower was originally intended for the Empress but instead was used as a church and chapel. The Chapel Of St. Catherine was the emperor’s private chapel, a small, narrow room whose walls are covered with precious stones. On the second floor is the Chapel Of The Holy Cross, a unique room with splendid furnishings. It is also the world's largest portrait gallery of the Middle Ages as it contains the original panel paintings by Master Theodoric. The Karlštejn Fortress is the epitome of religious power and glory.
