Pecka Castle is a historic fortress, which is located in Podkrkonoší region in the Czech Republic . The first mention of the fort dates back to the 14th century. Pecka Castle originally was a defense point of the Stupna village, where gold was mined in the Middle Ages. Since the Middle Ages there were several owners of Pecka Castle. The originally defense fort was later remodelled into a summer residence of the Carthusian order from Valdice near Jičín . Due to the fact that Pecka Castle was almost inhabited, it gradually dilapidated. The total destruction of the Pecka Castle came after a great fire in 1830 which destroyed most of the castle and turned it into the ruins.
