Castles, Palaces and Forts

I’ve been using Hrady, Zámky a Tvrze Království Českého (“Castles, Palaces and Forts of the Bohemian Kingdom”) by August Sedláček as a reference work quite a bit recently. Rather than just constantly going back to the bookmarks, I thought I would post the links here, especially in case others were interested — it’s a very thoroughly researched reference work!

Karlštejn from Hrady, Zámky a Tvrze, Vol. VI, Podbrdsko.

The work is divided into fifteen (15) volumes, conforming loosely to the provincial boundaries of the old Bohemian Kingdom of the Middle Ages:

Volume IV deals with Táborská Vysočina, that is, the portion of Vysočina that’s physically located in Bohemia, while Volume XV actually covers Kouřimsko, Vltavsko and the south-western of Boleslavsko.
