Czech Republic The Water Castle of Svihov

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The initial concept for Švihov was an artificial island. The buildings in the central area formed the core of the castle with two palaces, chapel and the staircase tower, thereby enclosing a rectangular inner courtyard. The zones of the internal walls with the four corner bastions and the first moat were protected. The second zone of walls, also with a moat encircled the core of the Castle and the intense defense options. This second phase of the construction was completed after the death of Půta (1504), i.e. at the beginning of the 16th century. The well-known late Gothic architect Benedikt Ried contributed considerably to the completion of construction. Both moats were filled by water from the Úhlava River.

Photography Tips

The castle is not typically on a hill but on a plain. During the day there is a lot of light, so it is better to take pictures in the morning and evening.
