Bohušov, Bruntál distr., Moravian-Silesian Region
Medieval castle Fulštejn
This medieval castle with earthwork fortification was erected on the site of a prehistoric hillfort from the Late Bronze Age. Built by Herbord I from Fulštejn, the castle became the main seat of this aristocratic family on the Moravian-Silesian border from the 13th to the mid-17th centuries. During the Bohemian-Hungarian wars at the end of the 15th century, the castle was damaged; most of the extant relics belong to the reconstruction, which followed. During the Thirty Years’ War, the caste was damaged by Swedish troops and started to fall into disrepair.
