The strange ruin of what was once a Gothic castle, founded at the end of the 14th century by the family of Vartenberk, has become the main symbol of the region of Český ráj.

The location on two steep basalt rock cliffs meant that Trosky Castle was difficult to conquer - even the Hussites were not successful. However, if you take a tour around the premises, you can get to know a lot about the rich history of the castle and its development and you can climb the towers called Baba (i.e. Old Woman) and Panna (i.e. Young Girl). Both towers offer unique views of the wide surroundings.

In July and August the tours are completed with shows - birds of prey training and breeding.

You can go through the castle on your own, without a guide. As regards groups, you can book a guide ahead of time (July -August).
