CZ: Relax Weekends in a Historical Environment

Three aristocratic dynasties changed here during the history of the castle: Valdštejns, Fürstenberks and Thurn-Taxis. Besides that the castle had been visited by many famous historical personas such as Emperor Francis I , famous writer Mark Twain, poet Rainer Maria Rilke or composer Bedřich Smetana. Since 2000 a private company that made a complete reconstruction and got a new exhibition to work has owned the castle.
The castle offers several types of accommodation. You can choose one of three apartments in the castle, or you can choose an accommodation in a three-star hotel Maxmilián. Guests can also use convention center, swimming pool with a sauna and a restaurant where breakfasts are served. 11 labyrinths and mazes waits for you in a unique park in English style.

You have also free entrance into the swimming pool and sauna. You can also borrow bikes. A tour of castle’s interiors belongs to greatest attractions there – it is performed with a classic tour guide, a castle valet or even a prince.
Hotel Maltézský Kříž in the region of Karlovy Vary is another romantic place where you can spend a nice relax weekend. The four-star hotel was built in 1706 and it is located in the center of Karlovy Vary close to the river Teplá. Thanks to its characteristic façade with green window shutters the hotel is easily recognizable. In 2003 there had been a complete reconstruction that, however, preserved half-timbered masonry and mural paintings.
