It was founded in 1348 by the Czech King and Holy Roman Emperor Karl IV as a place for safekeeping of royal treasures, especially Karl’s collection of holy relics and the coronation jewels of the Roman Empire.
Zvíkov Castle – the seat of the first Czech kings and one of the most picturesque places in Bohemia. Why? Zvíkov Castle located at the confluence of the Vltava and Ottawa rivers, among rocks and forests. This is really significant place in the history of Bohemia: these stones still remember King Premysl Otakar II and according to some, this is where the royal treasures were stored before the Karlstejn!

The original position of the caslte, on a rock 60 m above the Vltava valley, was altered by the creation of the Orlík reservoir in 1954-62, and the castle is now barely a few metres above the water level.
