Castle Kašpark. Rediscovery of the Pearl of Šumava
Hraničková, Dagmar ; Čechura, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Jarošová, Markéta (referee)
The aim of this work is to outline the history of Kašperk castle, one of numerous structures founded by Charles IV. I was working there as a guide and I found out we do not know much about modern history of Kašperk. Due to the fact that Kašperk was left behind and forgotten for almost 400 years it is now in ruin. I am going to assemble various forms of information about what was happening there during the period of time when it was not considered a historic monument. Additionally, my research focuses on what made people take interest in medieval castles, especially in literature. I will primarily focus on modern history circa 17th century but will also include some medieval history of Kašperk as it is integral to understanding the conception of this castle's place in history.
