The Hluboká Castle (German: Schloss Frauenberg) is situated in Hluboká nad Vltavou and considered one of the most beautiful castles of the Czech Republic.
In the second half of the 13th century a gothic castle was built at the site. During its history it was rebuilt several times. It was first expanded during the Renaissance period, then rebuilt into a Baroque castle at the order of Adam Franz von Schwarzenberg in the beginning of the 18th century. It reached its current appearance during the 19th century when Johann Adolf II von Schwarzenberg ordered the reconstruction of the castle in the romantic style of the Windsor Castle.
In the former riding hall is now located Aleš South Bohemian Gallery, which administers the a collection of sculptures and paintings from the late 13th century to the present. This collection is among the most significant in the Czech Republic.
