Sloup Rock Castle is the best preserved rock castle in Czech Republic . It stands on 35 m high rock in the valley of the Dobranovsky creek in a village Sloup v Čechách . Sloup Rock Castle was built in the late 13th century and it was owned by the family of Berka of Duba. In 1445 the castle was conquered and burned down by the army of Lusatian Six-township. Sloup Rock Castle was abandoned during the Thirty's Years War.

Armoury, cloister and rock chapel

The most popular features of the Sloup Rock Castle are the rock chapel and terraces. Scenic rock terraces are 100 m long and 60 meters wide and offer a great view on close surroundings. Another interesting feature in the castle is the armoury, which has walls decorated with reliefs. There are also the cloister, the rock church and a dungeon in the castle areal. Very popular are the concerts by candle light organized in the castle in summer


. In the castle premises a museum exhibition devoted to hermits in northern Bohemia was installed. In 1690 allowed a construction of Baroque hermitage in the Sloup Rock Castle. Several rooms and corridors carved in the rock have been preserved from the original castle and hermitage up to the present time. There is a statue of a hermit on one of the castle's terraces - the hermit is looking through a telescope toward the Samuel´s cave. It is a reminder of a hermit called Samuel Görner, who made the cave in 1708 and lived there until 1735.After that he became the fifth hermit in a row living in the Sloup Rock Castle.
