The chateau with farm buildings and garden forms a large complex, in which the Celtic Culture Information Center was founded in 2004. Here you will learn much about our ancestors - how they lived, ate, worked, created, and something from their spiritual world. Thanks to archaeology, you will learn that the Celts were skilled craftsmen, great merchants, warriors and conquerors.

At the foot of Křivoklát forests in the undulating landscape of the remains of one of the oldest castles in the Czech Republic - ruins of a Žebrák castle. On the same ridge, only a little higher bask Točník castle, the younger of two inseparable allies.
In my opinion, the region of Křivoklát is one of the most beautiful corners of our country. However, by far it doesn't consist only of Křivoklát Castle itself, but a large portion of its charm makes the local deciduous forests, the Berounka Valley and the landmarks that the area hides. One of the places worth visiting is the village of Nižbor thanks to the castle and its surroundings. Let's go to it together.
Beroun is easily accessible from Prague or from Plzeň. Thus in time when it is considered modern to live outside a big city, Beround becomes favorite plays for Prague “fugitive”. It is around 30 kilometers from Prague and it is well connected with the metropolis. To Plzeň it is about 75 kilometers from Beroun.
The town of Rakovník, with its sixteen thousands of inhabitants, has a smiling history which could open, even at present, a bit of truth about Czech nation. From this reason, Zikmund Winter, writer, gave the town a part of his life.
Last time we introduced you the ruins of the castle Žebrák, now we move a few hundred meters away - to the castle Točník, much more attractive part of the most preserved castle complex in the Czech Republic.
