Křivoklát Castle is situated on the territory of the township village of Křivoklát and is one of the oldest and most import
ant medieval castles of Czech princes and kings, who initially used it as a hunting castle. Inside the castle is a series of valuable areas refurbished in the late-Gothic style, and, above all, the chap
el with a preserved late- Gothic painted altar that belongs to one of the most important Gothic spaces in the country.
