The castle was built on an island in the middle of a muddy swamp. The castle was built on an island in the middle of a muddy swamp. It is surrounded by beautiful grounds like ponds and meadows. There are hundreds of different species of plants here including rhododendrons, azaleas, larkspurs, and water lilies. At night you can hear the air horn sound while wishing good wishes on leaves (a traditional Czechs belief). There is also one legend about an old witch who lived in a cottage at the edge of town where she used to cast spells on her enemies so they would be killed by their own swords (the theory being that if people were allowed to kill each other without having any guilt or shame).
There are also legends about how Emperor Charles V lived here (or possibly his wife), how he served his first three wives here while they were living in Vienna (the third wife supposedly poisoned him), and how this area was used as a place for executions during the reign of Charles’ son Maximilian I . In 1533 Emperor Charles V moved into this castle after it was burned down during an uprising led by Jan Hus (who was burned at stake for protesting church corruption). He then made it his last residence before moving to Spain (which he died in there too). During World War II it served as Stalingrad’s prison camp for Jewish prisoners who were brought here by train from concentration camps across Europe after their Nazi captors found out they were carrying valuable information that could lead to their liberation. When King John III ascended this throne in 1610 it became his summer residence until his death from plague in 1619 which resulted in its abandonment until King Wenceslas IV took over it again between 1647-1653 when it finally became his winter residence after having stayed there for 13 years under John III’s rule during Bohemia’s reign as emperor from 1442-1444 before becoming King Wenceslas IV’s
