Top creator Pava created this stunning drone video of four famous castles of the Czech Republic: Karlstejn, Hluboká, Křivoklát, and Kost.  The first two are probably the best known.  Karlstejn is a 14th century Gothic castle in Central Bohemia which was reconstructed in the Renaissance and later the Neo-Gothic style; it housed the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Emperor.  Hluboká Castle in South Bohemia had similar origins; its current state reflects its 19th century reconstruction in the Romanticist style.

Here's a drone video by Topi80 of the Bezděz Castle, one of the most famous castles in the Czech republic.  The semi-ruined structure lies in the Liberac region, the northernmost part of country.  Lying in a strategically important area in the mountains near the border with what is now Poland, the castle was constructed in the 13th century.  Built in the Gothic style, the castle was seized by Imperial forces during the Thirty Years War of the 17th century, in the course of which it was basically destroyed.

Check out this fabulous 2019 drone reel from the Czech Republic, compliments of new contributor and pilot giacobbeen.  The video features brilliant footage of iconic mist-covered landscapes in this Central European land, mostly from the heart of the country - the rolling hills, pristine forests, and shimmering lakes of central and southern Bohemia and Moravia.  You'll also see some nice shots of some well-known Czech castles, including Pernštejn Castle in South Moravia at the :45 mark.

Bohemia Showreel 2019


Top contributor ludoweet has created dozens of drone videos from all across the Czech Republic and elsewhere in Central Europe.  In this video, he's compiled some of his best footage from the country's Bohemian region from 2019 into a single reel.  Bohemia is a historical region which covers roughly the western half of the Czech Republic.  The reel will give you a good sense for the hilly terrain which characterizes much of Bohemia, as well as for the castles and fortresses which sit atop many of its most strategically located hilltops.

Founded in 1348 by Charles IV the Holy Roman Emperor-elect and King of Bohemia, Karlštejn Castle is a sight to see from above. The castle served as a place for safekeeping the Imperial Regalia, as well as their crown jewels, holy relics, and other treasures. Located about 30 km (19 miles) away from Prague, it is one of the most visited and famous castles in the Czech Republic. See the gorgeous, Gothic castle in 4K from a drone, thanks to pilot OOO Photography.
