Karlstejn Castle — a gorgeous wedding place near Prague
This castle is a real fortress that played a significant role in history. Nowadays tourists go, ride and even rent planes to see Karlstejn, since it is situated not far from Prague in a very picturesque area. Wedding ceremonies are held in ancient halls. All in all the ceremony takes about 30-40 minutes, though it is a very solemn event held by a local authority. After the ring are exchanged, couples usually role down the hill and take the way back to Prague. Unfortunately there are not so many facilities for the brides to be hosted in a hotel and to host the guest. Therefore they usually get ready in Prague, then about 1 hour by car to the castle, the ceremony, some pictures and way back to capital.
Zbiroh Castle — hotel and place to get married
I would call this Chateau a cosy one, since it has really warm atmosphere. Zbiroh Castle is a place to come just for one day or to stay for a certain period.

Stylish apartments, design and the soul of the castle will let you plunge into ancient times of king and queens. There are 2 main halls for 200 and 30 people.
