Karlštejn Castle 13 km
One of the most popular Czech monuments is located just 13 kilometres away from our restaurant.

Karlštejn has a unique position among our significant historic monuments. Its appearance also makes it one of the most picturesque medieval monuments in the Czech Republic. You can admire historic interiors of two floors of the Emperor’s Palace, the castle’s Treasury in the Marian Tower (for example, Courtier’s Hall, Knight’s Hall, Royal Bedroom, Audience Hall, Ancestors’ Hall, Banqueting Hall and many others).
Koněprusy Caves 14 km
The cave system originated through erosion by water leaking through the limestone massif. The water created a system of three cave levels with more than 70 metres of elevation. The main stage of the development of the cave premises is thought to have occurred 25 to 30 million years ago.
The Koněprusy Caves are located in the Czech Karst nature reserve. They were discovered in 1950 as limestone was extracted in the Houba’s quarry on the south slope of the Zlatý kůň (Golden Horse) hill. Soon, explorations started and showed an unprecedented scope of newly discovered underground premises. The three-level cave system comprises over 2 km of corridors.
A number of animal bones but also the bones of prehistoric man have been discovered in the caves. Remnants of a 15-century money forgery have been discovered on the top floor. Koněprusy Caves continue to be the longest known cave system in Bohemia.
The caves have been accessible to the general public since 1959, with dozens of thousands of visitors each year.

Golf Resort Karlštejn 27-hole golf course 13 km
An attractive course unfolds on the slopes facing Karlštejn Castle and has a rather meadow-like character. The hilly terrain makes it a very demanding course for players. Minimum amounts of full-grown greenery allows the changing wind to affect the play by complicating the intentions of the golfers even more. However, playing here has its appeal and it is a strong experience to fight the course.
