Doubravka Castle

Local name: Hrad Doubravka

Dubravka Castle stands on the top of a forested hill about 400 m above sea level. It is a medieval fortress, rebuilt in the nineteenth century into a romantic palace. A large part of its buildings have survived, with four towers and remains of defensive walls. Currently, there is an amateur radio station and a radio station inside. For this reason, they are not available to tourists.

The castle was built at the end of the 14th century, after the Hussite wars. He served military purposes until the Thirty Years War when he was demolished. Its reconstruction took place at the end of the 19th century. The castle gained a neo-Gothic, romantic look. The apartments of the owners were located here, as well as a small restaurant, which in addition to excellent cuisine also offered beautiful views of the Cieplice hills below.

Since 1966, the castle has been used by an amateur association of amateur radio and radio operators. Transmission antennas are placed on the roofs and towers, which slightly spoil the appearance of the fortress. The castle consists of two buildings reinforced with towers. They resemble Gothic French castles.
