Bezděz Castle

Local nameHrad Bezděz
LocationBezděz, Czechia

Bezděz Castle is a Gothic castle located some 20 kilometres southeast of Česká Lípa, in the Liberec Region, Northern Bohemia, Czech Republic. Its construction began before 1264 by order of Přemysl Otakar II.

The royal castle of Bezděz was one of the most important Gothic castles in the Czech lands until its destruction in the Thirty Years' War. Erected between 1260–1280 on the phonolite hill of Velký Bezděz, 604 metres above sea level, it became the characteristic dominant feature of the local landscape and met the demands for an inaccessible as well as respectable royal castle.
