(Exploring Land of the Castles)
1. 6. 2019

Ruins of medieval castles stand on the basalt peaks of the České středohoří as an eagle nests. We conquered Wostrey, Košálov, Skalka, Oltářík, Chlum and Hradišany. There was little left of the castles, but the prospects from the peaks are breathtaking and worth the effort. The magical Land of the Castles extends all around us.
