   Krakovec castle was constructed in about 1383 for a distinguished man of the royal court, a minion of Václav IV and a burgrave of the Køivoklát castle, Jíra of Roztoky. This architecturally imposing castle is known to be the last resort of Jan Hus before leaving for Kostnice. In the 16th century the castle was modified in the Renaissance style and was still under repair at the start of the 17th century. It was abandoned after the fire in 1783.
