Kuneticka hora Castle

Kuneticka hora Castle
The castle played an important role during the Hussite Wars of the early 15th century, during which it was a fortress of Divis Borek of Miletinek. In 1491 it was bought by Vilem of Pernstejn, who ordered the castle rebuilt in the late Gothic style, with two towers and a moat. The construction was continued by Vilem’s sons in the early Renaissance style. During the Thirty Years’ War, in the early 17th century, the castle was besieged several times; at the end of the war Swedish troops burned it to the ground.
