Gateway to the world of the Saxon Renaissance
The castle complex in Benešov nad Ploučnicí in North Bohemia is a unique example of the architecture of the Late Gothic period of Vladislav II, a Renaissance hybrid known as the Saxon Renaissance, thus it rightly ranks among the most important preserved monuments of the Czech Republic. A richly furnished period exhibition documenting noble life is housed inside the three accessible castles.
