Although a small village located in the Hradec Králové region dates back to 1052, it is probably experiencing its greatest glory only now. Visitors from all over the Czech Republic come here to enjoy the unique medieval atmosphere. Dětenice is located on the road between Jičín and Mladá Boleslav, less than 70 kilometers from Prague. The village lies practically at the beginning of the beautiful Bohemian Paradise. Part of this small village is the unique Castle Resort Dětenice, which includes a Baroque castle, a brewery and a medieval tavern.
Even if the castle did not stand on Mount Trosky, it would in itself be a great attraction for tourists. It is a 488 meter high volcano with two cones created by erupting lava. Today, these cones are called Virgo and Baba. The former is younger but taller (even with a tower 518 meters above sea level).
