Zvíkov Castle


MIAPVIDEOS created this beautiful drone video of Zvikov Castle, one of the most important castles in the South Bohemia region of the Czech Republic.  It is situated in a highly strategic location at the juncture of the Vltava and Oltava rivers.  Built in the 13th century, it was besieged but not taken during the 15th century Hussite Wars that raged through Bohemia.  Its luck ran out during the Thirty Years' War; it surrendered after a siege by a large Habsburg force and was subsequently devastated.
