Kamen Castle means the castle solid as the stone (rock-stone) which it was built on in the Middle Ages. It was an important strategic point for Hussite troops under religious wars in the 15th century. The inhabitants of the castle had full comfort there: a storage room and armoury on the ground floor, living quarters and a representative hall on the first floor. Stone walls were thermally insulated by panelling, titled stoves were used for heating and the small arched windows provided a beautiful view of the country.
