Eastern Bohemia - Region of Historical Landmarks
Magical niches in castle ruins, old castles proudly towering over their surrounding landscapes, romantic gardens, and elegant chateaus. All of these are remnants of times past that remain attractive to this day. It is a place that consumes and transports a person hundreds of years into the distant past. Each of these places impresses with its unique genius loci, whether it is the ruins of Potštejn Castle, a proud member of the UNESCO list world heritage list, Litomyšl Castle, the impregnable gothic Kost Castle, historical residences on the Orlice River, the baroque Potštějn Chateau, or Kolowrat Chateau in Rychnov nad Kněžnou. The baroque churches of the Broumov region and the spectacular Kuks Hospital with its hospital garden and terrace, home to a group of allegoric statues representing virtue and vice created by Matyáš Bernard Braun, are genuinely unique features.
