We have been to the Czech Republic quite often, given that we live part of the year in Bavaria, near the Czech Border. Aside from the obvious tourist targets like the Prague Castle, the Karlstejn or Konopiste, we can recommend the following:

1. Hluboka Castle (southern Czech Republic near Budejovice)- a 13th century fortress rebuilt in the 19th century to look similar to Windsor Castle

2. Hradek u Nechanic (NE of the country near Hradec Kralove)- a neo-gothic castle, built in the 19th century in the Tudor style, based on plans originally intended for the castle at Crewe Hall in England by Edward Lamb

3. Buchlovice Castle (near Zlin in the east of the country)- grand Italian Baroque, designed by Domenico Martinelli

4. Lednice Castle (southen Moravia near the Austrian border)- originally a medieval fortress, lared rebuilt during the Renaissance and Baroque, most recently in the 19th century into a Neo-Gothic style.
