Orlík nad Vltavou, Czech Republic

a card I received back in 2008...huh, what a long time ago..


the card shows the Orlík Castle, near the Orlík nad Vltavou village (meaning, Orlík upon the river Vltava). The castle is surrounded by a huge castle park and a game preserve. It belongs to the house of Schwarzenberg, but normally during the summer it is open to public.

looks like a really lovely scene, and probably one of the most perfect views to greet you in the morning when you open your eyes and look out the window...

My family's old castle...
Given to the becoming Czech king, later transferred (due to no male successor) to the Schwarzenberg part of the family.
