Castle Valdstejn (Valdštejn, Wallenstein)

The oldest castle of the Bohemian Paradise is located near Turnov and has a rich history. It was founded in 1260 by the Valdstejn family. Frequent changes of owners in the 15th century caused that the castle was divided into two separate castles.

The visit to the castle is often complemented with a walk in the surrounding Hruba Skala Rock Town (Hrubá Skála). The Bohemian Paradise offers to its visitors a unique combination of natural beauty and an unusual number of historical mouments, castles and mansions, all located in a very small area.
