Trosky Castle (Czech: Hrad Trosky) is a castle ruin some 10 kilometres (6 mi) south of Semily, Liberec Region, Czech Republic. It is one of the most famous Czech castles and is on the summits of two basalt volcanic plugs. On the lower peak, 47 metres (154 ft), is the two-storey structure called Baba (Old Woman), and on the higher outcrop, 57 metres (187 ft), is the four-sided structure known as Panna (Maiden). The castle is a landmark in the countryside known as Český ráj (Bohemian Paradise).

  • Definitely a must-visit place if you are nearby. The views are stunning. The visit took us around 45 minutes only, including the short walk from and to the parking. As usual, if you cone at 9.00 in the morning, there are no crowds at all.
