The Šumava mountain range stretches across south and west Bohemia, roughly a two hours’ drive by car from Prague. Although, it is a totally different world. A world of deep forests, ancient towns and medieval castles. The three most significant Šumava castles, situated in close proximity, are called the Šumava castle trio (Šumavské trojhradí). They include Velhartice, Kašperk and Rabí castles. And which of them is the most beautiful? That is up to you to decide. Will it be the massive Rabí ruins? Or Kašperk, the highest-located royal castle in Bohemian territory? Or Velhartice Castle, with its unique stone bridge?
