Pernstejn Castle, Nedvedice
(4.7/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
Pernštejn Castle is a castle located on a rock above the village of Nedvědice and the rivers Svratka and Nedvědička, some 40 km northwest of Brno, in the South Moravian Region, Czech Republic. Pernštejn came to be known as the marble castle because of the marble-like stone used to frame the doors and windows.It was founded by the Lords of Medlov probably between 1270–1285. The family branch seated at the castle and adopted the then fashionable name Pernštejn, which is the Czech version probably derived of the German name, Bärenstein – the "Bear Rock". Its history is closely connected to the Lords of Pernštejn (Pernštejnové) and their descendants. It has kept its intact appearance in the Gothic and Renaissance form as it was finished in the first half of the 16th century by the Pernštejns, then the richest and most powerful lordly family of the Czech kingdom. Pernštejn is one of the best preserved castles in Czech Republic.

  • In Moravia, near Brno, there is a 13th century fortress-Pernstejn. This castle, one of the few that have reached our time in most saved form. From the top "Horned" Tower offers a great view of the surrounding natural beauty! Very interesting move on this tower, uzen'komu wooden bridge. It is a pity that in the premises of the Castle are not allowed to take pictures. Part of the premises of the castle looks like this, as they were in the 15th century (kitchen and some other premises), the majority of halls and rooms have views, which they adopted much later, 18th century. Very interesting to compare. Of all the castles that we have for 4 years visited in the Czech Republic (and they are many), this is perhaps the most interesting. On examination it is possible to submit "as it was then,"

  • It is a marvelous place. The castle of Tolkien's stories. The best journey is to walk up to the castle from the parking lot or take a small-gauge train (yuck). Anyway, must see. 
  • The Castle, where the few fairy tales is set in the hills above the Valley of the river and overlooks the Nedvědici and far and near surroundings. It is a journey to the middle ages with preserved spaces and stories.

  • One of my all time favorite castles. This Gothic castle was build in 13th century. The castle is very well preserved and the tour is very interesting.
  • One of the most important, biggest and most beautiful medieval castles in this region. Well-preserved. Visit recommended!
  • Good castle from middle age. Prefer for people who came to Czech Republic and want to know about historic of Moravia. There is excursion inside of castle for 7 euro (summertime 2016).
  • Must see if you stay longer time in CZ. One of the most famous castle. Guided tour to the interior and real medieval atmosphere. Relaxing environment. Entrance fee is bit high.
  • Pěkný hrad s velice zajímavou prohlídkou. Oceňuji nové velké parkoviště nedaleko. Mrzí mě stav památky, stejně jako cena vstupného v porovnání s prostorem, který vidíte. Doufal jsem v nahlédnutí do více prostor. Celkový dojem je ale pozitivní.
