Karlstejn Castle is a large Gothic castle founded 1348 by Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor-elect and King of Bohemia. The same year when the king founded Prague’s New Town and Charles University. The castle was built to hold the royal treasures and coronation jewels of the Roman Empire, and served as the king’s retreat. As Karlštejn stands on a hill surrounded by other hills, so it cannot be seen until you get very close. This clever strategy has paid off. Since it is impossible to see the castle from afar and Karlštějn was never conquered in the past.
