The town of Hluboka nad Vltavou is famous for its charming Hluboka castle, now beautifully illuminated at night. The castle was built in the second half of the 13th century, originally as a royal Gothic castle. In the late 16th century Hluboka was rebuilt in the Renaissance style and in 1721-28 in the Baroque style. Its today’s Neo-Gothic look dates back to the reconstruction in 1841-1871, reconstruction designed by F. Beer and D. Deworetzky. At that time also appeared the “Stöckl” building, then adjoining the kennels and stables and now hosting the Stekl hotel. It was designed in the same style as the Hluboka castle and was used as its administration building. Until 1989 it had been used as a residential building.
