Zebrak Castle is the ruins of a castle in the Czech Republic . It is situated between the cities Prague (55 km) and Pilsen (50 km) , near the town Žebrák. It is one of the Točník and Žebrák twin castles. In its times, Zebrak Castle was one of the most beautiful royal residences in the country.

History

Its location, on the important land way from Prague through Pilsen to Nuremberg , predetermined Zebrak Castle to be an often used overnight place for the Emperor Charles IV on his voyages. King Wenceslaus IV, the son of Charles IV, often stayed at the castle during his journeys, too. He received here delegations and guests from abroad. Since Zebrak Castle was no longer suitable for representation, the fire in 1395 was used as an excuse for building a new seat. Consequently, between 1398-1401, the new representative castle Točník has been built near Zebrak Castle.

Zebrak Castle Today

The history of the castles remained closely connected, and today they are the best preserved and most famous twin castles in the Czech Republic . Zebrak Castle is opened to the public, and its massive round tower currently serves as an outlook-tower.
