Strakonice Castle

Strakonice Castle

Strakonice Castle or Hrad Strakonice is located in South Bohemian Region of Czech Republic. It was constructed in the 12th century by Bavor I, participant of the Crusades, and his wife Bolemilou. In 1402 a knight order of Hospitallers acquired the fortress and made it their regional headquarter. In the 17th century the castle was badly damaged by the invading Swedish troops during Thirty Years' War. Although the details seem hazy it is claimed that the Strakonice Castle was taken thanks to betrayal rather than military might and courage of their enemies.
