Chateau Hluboka is often described as the most beautiful Czech castle. The castle is located in South Bohemia and owes its current appearance to the Schwarzenberg family. Hluboka Castle was originally founded as a guardian castle in the middle of the 13th century by Bohemian kings. Within the context of the Romantic modification of the noble residence, the Schwarzenbergs founded an expansive landscaped park in the mid 19th century. The castle consists of 140 rooms and 11 towers.
