This Renaissance water chateaux, rebuilt from the Gothic fort, is one of the most popular castles in the Czech Republic. The castle is first mentioned in written documents in the middle of the 15th century. Its red facade that gives the name to the castle (červená means "red" in Czech) comes from the 16th century. Its current appearance comes from the middle of the 19th century.
The castle is easily distinguished and remarkable due to its unusual red colour. Its fairytale atmosphere is often used by film crews.
After its reconstruction the castle was used as a summer seat and not as a permanent residence of its owners.
The castle was built on the rock surrounded by water. It has got a stone bridge that links the castle with the banks of the pond.
The castle houses an extensive collection of historic furniture, pictures, porcelain and other items. A park that belongs to the castle is highly valued by botanists.
During a small walk around the castle or a row on a rented boat there is a possibility to enjoy the breath-taking views of the castle from many different perspectives.
