Whether there are really 2000 castles and chateaus in the Czech Republic, I cannot say exactly. In any case, there are many buildings, because almost in every place there is a castle, chateau, fortress or remains of a complex.
Most of the facilities are very well maintained and blend harmoniously into their surroundings. The architecture is often as impressive as the history behind it. Especially nice is that you can visit many castles and palaces and learn about past and present life there directly on site.

A little more than 30 kilometres from Pilsen, in Kladruby in the west of the Czech Republic, lies the beautiful Kladruby Monastery with its associated castle building. I was very impressed by the visit to the monastery church, what a beautiful and above all large building.
