History

The gothic ruins of the fortress-like Střekov Castle was built in 1316 for John of Luxemburg by his royal architect and engineer, Pešek of Veitmile. It originally guarded the important trade route to Germany. After 1479, the family Glacs´of Starý Dvůr acquired the Castle, repaired the fortifications and built two houses next to the smaller tower and eastern wall.
