Long Description:
The Zviretice castle was founded by Markvartic Zdislav at the beginning of the 14th century. Later it was rebuilt as a renaissance mansion, but burnt down twice and was not reconstructed again after the second fire in 1720. Remains of the main palace and a tower have survived until today. The ruin is a favourite trip destination.
