Karlštejn, Czech Republic

mmmmmm.............mmmmmmmmmmm.....another breathtaking view of a castle

This is the Karlštejn castle, in the Czech Republic.

It's a large Gothic castle, founded in the 14th century by Charles IV. he castle served as a place for safekeeping the Empire coronation jewels, holy relics and other royal treasures. Located about 20 km, southwest of Prague, in the Karlštejn village it is one of the most famous and heavily visited castles in the Czech Republic.

What I particularly love about this one is its setting in the woods, and how its surrounded by them......the castle itself is fascinating as well!
