But do you know that the King of All Castles in Czech Republic belong to another castle in Liberec Region and not the Prague Castle? It’s surprising, indeed. The King of all Castles is called Bezdez Castle. A castle on the hill, around one and a half hour from Prague, this castle is not so popular among tourists.

Bezdez Castle

The main reason for why is it called as the king of all castles is that it’s not destroyed as most of the castles in Czech Republic and the style of the castle is not changed as much since the 13th century. The castle served several purposes already, such as a fortress and a monastery. Wenceslas II was imprison here together with Queen Kunhuta when he was just 6 or 7 years old.
