Czech Republic Visit: 2007-6
2009-03-27 - Karlstejn Castle is just a 30 minute train ride from downtown Prague. From the train station, travelers walk a winding cobblestone path up through Karlstejn village to reach the castle, although there are often horse-drawn buggies waiting to take tourists up through the quaint little town. The castle itself is well-preserved due to its location at the top of a craggy outcropping of rock which made it so well protected that in its 400+ year history, the castle was never taken. There are some well-preserved original pieces of furniture dating back to the 17th century that were used by the castle inhabitants, including the painted panels from a dresser used by some of the castle knights. This is a wonderful day-trip from Prague that lets you ride through the beautiful Czech countryside and get away from the crowds that gather on the Charles Bridge and in the Old Town every day.
