Photographer's Note

The Karlštejn Castle welcomes us at the top of the forest hill. This imposing building was the will of King Charles IV (of the famous bridge in Prague) to store the jewels of the imperial crown. This first function did not last.

In the 19th century, it was remodeled in the historicizing style, with no particular desire to give back its original features.
