2004: Sharak The Third


Zamek Czocha

History

The castle of Czoch was built in the 13th century for King Waclaw II of Czechia as a defensive barrier for the north of Czechia. At the beginning of the 15th century, the castle lost it's military position and became a residence for noble families.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, the castle was twice rebuilt in the style of the Renaissance. In 1793, there was a fire in the castle, and it was partially ruined. Many pieces of art were lost. A year later, the owners rebuilt the ruined parts. A last renovation was made between 1909 and 1914. The interior of the castle was modernized.
