Since 1992, this top visited South Bohemian sight is in the world heritage list of UNESCO. The chateau was founded by the Vítkovec family, significantly extended by the Rozmberks, for a short period it was a residency of the Eggenbergs and its final image as we know it was given to Chateau Český Krumlov under the administration of the Schwarzenbergs.
