Czech castles

2 czech castles. The 1st was sent by Emerich and the 2nd by Linda "linda718".

Originally a Gothic water castle from late 13th century, the Budyne nad Ohrí Castle, was remodeled in the Renaissance style and further adapted in the Romantic style at the beginning of the 20th century.

"Hluboka Chateau is regarded as one of the most beautiful stately homes in Bohemia.
Hluboka is a monumental Romantic chateau - originally a Gothic castle - remoted in the Baroque style in 18th century. Later it underwent a significant transformation in the 19th century when it was remodeled in the English Windsor-style Gothic into the official seat of the Schwarzenberg dynasty.
The complex includes a glassed-in winter garden, a riding hall, an English park (190 hectares), and a chapel. Sumptuously furnished period interiors feature unique woodcarvings a valuable collections." - in
