   The fortified palace with a tower and a wall was built by Hynek Berka of Dubé around 1320. At the close of the 15th century the castle was renovated in the late Gothic style by the lords of Klinštejn. Since the middle of the 17th century Kokořín had been tenantless and it deteriorated.
   The ruins were not bought until 1894 by Václav Špaček of Starburk, who decided to renovate the castle. The architect, Eduard Sochor, was a leader in this project and, considering its occurrence between 1911 and 1918, it was one of the latest Romantic restorations of a Medieval object.
