EN
You can find Dražice Castle at the edge of the same village. The castle has survived only a few walls and the castle granary, which is still used.

The castle was built in the 13th century above the right bank of the Jizera. The original castle consisted of a cylindrical tower, fortification walls around the perimeter, the palace, with moat and drawbridge gate. In the 14th century the castle was rebuilt in the French Gothic. During the Hussite wars the castle was conquered and destroyed several times but was always restored. In the 16th century ceased to serve as a mansion and was abandoned. The castle then fell into ruins and a few ruins had only preserved currently.

Hrad Dražice leží na okraji stejnojmenné vsi. Z hradu se dochovalo jen nekolik málo zdí a hradní sýpka, která je dodnes využívána.

Hrad byl vybudován ve 13. století nad pravým brehem Jizery. Puvodní hrad se skládal z válcovité veže, hradební zdí kolem obvodu, hradního paláce, príkopu s bránou a padacím mostem. Ve 14. století byl hrad prestaven do francouzské gotiky. Behem husitských válek byl hrad nekolikrát dobyt a ponicen, ale byl vždy znovu opraven. V 16. století prestal sloužit jako panské sídlo a byl opušten. Hrad tedy zacal pomalu chátrat a do dnešního dne se nám zachovala pouze zrícenina.
