The Karlstejn Castle is A National Cultural Momument, located outside Progue. We had to walk about a mile to get to it and then all the way up that mountain. And eventually to the top of that tallest tower. Beautiful view from there.

But this was the middle of February, folks. Talk about COLD. I don't know how the residents of this castle ever managed. It was colder inside then out.

If you ever go there--and believe me it is well worth the trip-- go in the spring or fall. You'd never get up that mountainside in the summer time.
