Valštejn Castle is situated at the western edge of the Hruboskalsko rock formation. It was founded in the mid 13th century by the noble family of Markvartice, whose later successor was Albrecht of Valdštejn, the famous military leader.

The castle was deserted in the 16th century. In the Baroque period it was a popular pilgrimage destination.

The premises have distinctive Romantic style features as well (19th century). There is an extremely valuable access bridge built of stone, decorated with Baroque sculptures. Another rarity is the Chapel of St John of Nepomuk with a portrait of John the Baptist.

Valdštejn Castle is the venue of regular cultural events, such as concerts, fencing shows, traditional fairs, theatre performances, etc.

Attraction: the painting by František Mašek, allegedly the only real portrait of Karel Hynek Mácha, the famous Czech romantic poet.

Guided tour in Czech, printed guide in other languages available.
