Karlstejn - the gothic castle, dated from the 14th century, was founded by Emperor Karel IV (Charles IV.) as a repository of imperial crown jewels and sacred remains. It was modified in the Renaissance style and re-built in the purism style between the 19th and 20th century. It includes historic interiors of the Emperor's Palace and of the Marianska Tower. It contains also the Well Tower (Studnicny vez). The limestone area of the Czech Karst in the surrounding of the Karlstejn Castle was proclaimed a natural reserve. An educational path was established here.
