what big adventure did i have today?

Touring the Hluboka Chateau. Originally the chateau was a 13th century guarding castle built in the Gothic style. During the 16th century it was rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau. The Schwarzenberg's bought the chateau in 1661 and kept it in the family until they emigrated overseas to escape the Nazis. They rebuilt the chateau twice- once in the Baroque style and later in the neo-Gothic style. Click here for more on the history of the chateau.

Inside the courtyard. Unfortunately they would not allow pictures inside the chateau. You'll have to enjoy the photos taken of the exterior.
