The history of the castle Castolovice dates back to the 13th century, when it was a fortress in the marshes. During the 15th and 16th centuries the castle changed owners many times. The most important of them was king George of Poděbrad, whose first wife Kunhuta was born a Sternberg. King Rudolf II. bought Castolovice in 1577 – although there is no evidence that he ever visited it – and seven years later he sold it to the counts of Oppersdorff.
